 Michele Campanella Soloist


Franz Liszt’s own Bechstein piano was donated to the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena as a result of a warm friendship that struck up in 1938 between the owner of the piano, Roberto Almagia, and the founder of the Accademia, Count Guido Chigi Saracini. Almagia had bought it for his wife, but she had since died, and he was so impressed with the Count, he felt instinctively that the Accademia was the right place for the piano. In addition,Almagia knew that Liszt had links with Siena, as he had stayed there with Wagner and his family.

This is a remarkable recording of the Italian pianist Michele Campanella performing a selection of Liszt’s late works on this historic instrument, in the grand and sumptuous Liszt salon within the 14th century Palazzo Chigi Saracini, the home of the Accademia Musicale Chigiana. This collection of Liszt’s late works reflects the composer’s feelings about old age, the virtuoso brilliance of his earlier works replaced by sparser textures and experimental harmonies, including the dark and glittering Valses Oubliées, the impressionistic Nuages Gris and En rève, and the series of musical memorials to Hungarian artists and statesmen, Historiche Ungarische Bildnisse.

Michele Campanella is professor of piano at the Accademia. He is internationally known as one of the major interpreters of the Liszt repertoire, and was awarded the Grand Prix du Disque three years in a row by the FranzLiszt Academy in Bucharest. In 1986, the year of the 100th anniversary of Liszt’s death, Campanella was awarded a medal for his performances and recordings of Liszt by the Ministry for Hungarian Culture. During 2011, the bicentenary of Franz Liszt’s birth, Campanella is dedicating his entire musical activity, both as pianist and conductor, to the Hungarian composer he has studied and loved from an early age.
