All of the performances are immaculately played by Canadian pianist Louis Lortie

This collection of Liszt’s works for piano and orchestra – performed by the virtuoso pianist Louis Lortie – includes such rarities as his highly enjoyable set of variations on a theme from Beethoven’s Ruins of Athens, and his extensive fantasy on Berlioz’s Lelio, written in homage to a composer he particularly admired. These are but two among several works which demonstrate the composer’s exceptional enterprise in popularising works for his fellow musicians.

This collection makes its return to the Chandos catalogue; as a comprehensive survey of Liszt’s complete arrangements for piano and orchestra, it is sure to be a popular re-issue.

‘Lortie brings powerful and flamboyant playing…adding enormous vigour and vibrancy to the disc.’
The Pianist on CHAN 9864 (Volume 2)

‘Exuberant performances, overflowing with arch character and impish brio. Lortie doesn’t merely phrase responsively; he deftly teases and articulates, so that even routine passage-work lifts into scintillating repartee, wittily met by Pehlivanian and The Hague Residentie Orchestra,’
Fanfare on CHAN 9801 (Volume 1)

‘The hugely underrated Louis Lortie completes his Liszt concertante piano music series for Chandos with yet another example of his fine Lisztian credentials’
Gramophone Editor’s Choice on CHAN 9918 (Volume 3)
