Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording offers a sample of Liszt's piano compositions that is at once eclectic and fairly representative. Large-scale works (the Ballade no.2 in B minor, Funérailles, Après une lecture du Dante) mix with pieces of more modest dimensions like Nuages gris; original pieces such as Nuages gris and Après une lecture du Dante sit side beside arrangements, some of which are in fact more in the nature of transcriptions, like Isoldes Liebestod and Ständchen.

Classic FM Magazine
Ms de la Salle is a Lisztian to the manner born. The turbulent passions expressed in the Ballade, Funerailles and Liebestod are powerfully conveyed while Schubert and Schumann song transcriptions are beautifully phrased

Gramophone Magazine
De la Salle gives us a Liszt recital of astonishing strength, poetry and, for one so young, musical maturity. Whether in fist-shaking defiance, radiance or baleful resignation, she is superbly responsive to Liszt's rhetoric in the Dante Sonata. Here, as elsewhere, everything is given time to "speak, to weep and sing and sigh" (part of Liszt's own definition of a true virtuoso).

BBC Music Magazine
Lise de la Salle is fully in command of the technical difficulties and much of her playing is exciting
