 Valentina Lisitsa piano


Described by critics as a ‘bona fide angel playing’ and an ‘electrifying pianist’, the young Ukrainian-born, North Carolina-based Valentina Lisitsa has been receiving rave reviews ever since her début in Avery Fisher Hall for the Mostly Mozart Festival. It would be hard to conceive of a more thoroughly Romantic or demanding programme than she presents here: Beethoven’s radical ‘Appassionata’ Sonata, via Schumann’s musical expression of an adult’s memories of childhood and Thalberg’s fantastic transformation of themes from Rossini’s most popular opera to Liszt’s pianistic danse macabre, inspired by a fresco by the medieval Italian artist Francesco Traini.

                        ***/**** - Good/Excellent disc

Riccardo Risaliti - Musica magazine - June 2013


"Lisitsa’s Beethoven Appassionata Sonata is simply superb! Lisitsa’s Appassionata is fiery, powerful, full of energy and passion, tension-filled and driven. Her tempos are fast but always convincing, her articulation is crisp and clear, and her balancing of the main line with secondary or contrapuntal elements is always tastefully rendered. This is quite simply one of the finest performances of the Appassionata I’ve ever heard. Brendel, Schnabel, Cliburn, Ashkenazy, Barenboim and countless others have given us fine versions of this warhorse, but I can’t say any of them are better. Lisitsa’s is not an interpretation for the faint-hearted, however, but a white-heat account that might just leave you breathless and astonished."
