Grieg, Liszt, Mendelssohn: Piano Works
Grieg, Liszt, Mendelssohn: Piano Works (Decca 480 7675)
SKU: 16307
AU $8.95

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 480 7675 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

*FIRST INTERNATIONAL RELEASE ON CDAlicia de Larrocha’s magisterial, sonorous, even coruscating performance of Liszt’s B minor Sonata is here preceded by altogether more genteel repertoire from the 19th century - pairs of pieces by Grieg and Mendelssohn. A rarity - making its first appearance on CD internationally - is Grieg’s only solo piano sonata was written in eleven days at Rungsted, near Copenhagen, in June 1865 and published a year later. It is rarely performed or recorded today. Likewise, Mendelssohn's A minor Caprice, dizzyingly despatched by Larrocha, is unfairly neglected The lovely 'Notturno', on the other hand, is one of Grieg's best-known miniatures and likewise, Mendelssohn’s Variations serieuses one of his best-known solo piano pieces.

'musicianship and real keyboard bite [in the Mendelssohn] ... She plays the popular Grieg Nocturne with much impressionistic colour and sensitivity’ Gramophone (June 1970)

'[In the Liszt Sonata] she is illuminating often on matters of weight and touch (for example the rapid arpeggios in the first Agitato bit, also later); the fugue begins with splendid lightness and attack (the piano sound just about ideal here) ... The recording is ... indispensable listening for devotees of superior pianism' Gramophone (April 1978)
