To a great degree, this disc captures the excitement of Jorge Bolet's legendary recital at Carnegie Hall on February 25, 1974, and only falls short in conveying this pianist's enormous sound. The original analog recording is somewhat diminished in the digital transfer, and the inadequate technology of 1988 makes this CD a prime candidate for a new remastering. Yet Bolet's performances shine through the limited audio, and his mastery is what makes this album an essential item in any collection. His playing of the Bach/Busoni Chaconne in D minor is as controlled as possible, in light of its contrapuntal crossings and sudden changes of textures. Bolet gives a vigorous performance with only a few wrong notes -- easy to forgive when the daunting complexities of this arrangement are considered -- and the music is rich and powerful. In Chopin's Preludes, Bolet balances the shifting moods with great discipline, perhaps favoring the pensive preludes by minimizing the exuberance of the brighter pieces, but never at the expense of the set's continuity. Bolet's incredible ability to orchestrate at the keyboard is most apparent in Liszt's transcription of Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture, a tour de force of the piano's timbral possibilities. Decidedly the most dazzling offering of the evening, this extraordinary performance invites repeated listening.

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.

Marc Ribot, the anti-guitar hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.
