Overview

Alexandre Kantorow presents works by and inspired by Liszt, culminating in the austerely beautiful left-hand transcription of Bach’s Chaconne in D minor by Liszt’s younger sparring partner, Brahms.

There’s a distinct flavour of Liszt about the richly textured chromaticism of Bartók’s Op. 1 Rhapsody, first published in 1909; especially when heard next to Liszt’s final Transcendental Étude of fiftyish years earlier, ‘Chasse neige,’ whose tremolo and swirling chromatic figures depict a snow storm. Liszt’s Vallée d’Obermann is equally chromatic and pictorial; inspired by a French novel about a recluse who retreats to the Swiss Alps for nature-inspired existential musings, its initial descending left-hand idea provides the material for the ensuing restless music. Fauré’s thematically unified Nocturne No. 6 of 1894 is closer to the world of Liszt than to Chopin, despite its title. Similarly it’s Liszt, specifically his Faust-themed works, hovering behind Rachmaninoff’s grand-scale First Piano sonata of 1907. Initially titled ‘Faust,’ its three movements represent Faust, Gretchen and Mephistopheles, the latter complete with Dies irae motif. Finally, Brahms’s transcription of Bach’s D minor Chaconne, a technical study for the left-hand, is no less poetry-imbued for not being programmatic.
