Garrick Ohlsson performs: Franz Liszt, Volume 2

9409

Bridge is pleased to present Franz Liszt, Vol. 2, featuring keyboard titan, Garrick Ohlsson. Vol. 1 of the series (BRIDGE 9337), featuring Liszt’s Sonata and Busoni’s transcription of Liszt’s Ad Nos Fantasy, received stellar reviews in the international press. Writing in Audiophile Audition, Gary Lemco opined that “Ohlsson raises the level of performance well above the merely virtuosic into the realm of demonized contrapuntal poetry, one of the great Liszt statements for the new millenium.” BBC Music Magazine remarked on Ohlsson’s “impressive display of ego-free power and virtuosity…Ohlsson delivers with an objective immensity.” Vol. 2 is no let down, with Ohlsson offering an equal measure of poetry and keyboard thrills in a mixed program of Liszt’s transcriptions (Bach and Beethoven) and favorites (Mephisto Waltz, No. 1, Funérailles, and Les Jeux d’eaux).
