Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
He performs brilliantly. Lisiecki includes the composer's brief Romance Op. 28:2 and two Brahms rhapsodies in his program. All are performed with style and, in the case of the rhapsodies, sweep and passion. That he deeply loves Brahms is obvious in both these terrific performances, from his own composition, Fantasy on a theme from Choral Prelude, Op. 122:2, and by the subtitle of his disc: "Homage to Brahms". It's an interesting and enjoyable way to spend about six minutes. Since the two rhapsodies must surely rank among the best recordings of these works. All of the notes are well prepared, and the recordings leave little to be desired.
