Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

In the Romantic period, the connections between love and death were an obsession of artists. Composers were naturally drawn to explore the great themes that entered literature in the works of Dante, Petrarch and Goethe: good and evil; love and death. Liszt was no exception. His powerful, evocative works presented here range from moments of repose and contemplation to nearly unbearable contrasts of dynamics, pitch registers, and tempi, uniquely dramatized by bold juxtapositions. Carlo Grante, dubbed "a fearless, flawless knight of the piano" by Die Presse, Vienna, delivers outstanding performances of grace, depth and volcanic dynamism.
