Franz Liszt's piano transcriptions were among his most important contributions in promoting the music of the early Romantic masters, and he labored over the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven for more than two decades, completing the entire set of transcriptions in 1865. Yury Martynov has been releasing them on Zig Zag Territoires since 2012, and this fourth and penultimate volume in his series presents the Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major and the Symphony No. 5 in C minor, performed on a Blüthner piano, ca. 1867, from the Edwin Beunk collection. This vintage instrument gives a good idea of the varied sonorities available to Liszt, and Martynov skillfully re-creates the orchestral effects that are so brilliantly imitated in these arrangements. Some listeners who avoid historic keyboard instruments may be cautious about this recording, but the sound of the Blüthner piano is rather close to a modern piano in tone and dynamics, and it is fuller and much more robust than a fortepiano. Martynov's performance of the Fourth is light and agile, while his Fifth is dramatic and full-blooded, with a virtuosic flashiness that is wholly in the Lisztian tradition.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.
