Notes & Reviews:

Franz Liszt had a particular affection for the music of Franz Schubert, considering him to be "the most poetic musician who ever lived". Ordered according to key relationships rather than the narrative content of the verse, his transcriptions of Schubert's two great song cycles, Winterreise and Schwanengesang, outstanding examples of the genre, formed a popular part of his concert programs during his years as a traveling virtuoso. Avan Yu, one of Canada's most exciting pianists, won the Gold Medal at the Canadian Chopin Competition at age 17.

Yu's treatment of these works reveals sensitivity and conviction. His Naxos debut of these Schubert transcriptions respects the original melodies with astounding attention to Liszt's details. The clarity of 'Gute Nacht' is astounding. His rhythms are always tasteful, and even crisp, as in 'Mut!' Yu also has an ear for color and character, as evidenced in the darker tones of 'In der Ferne". An enjoyable recording.
