Liszt: Symphonic Poems (transcribed Stradal, Volume 1) – Risto-Matti Marin, piano

Although the thirteen symphonic poems of Liszt exist in two-piano transcriptions prepared by the composer himself, it was his Czech student August Stradal (1860 – 1930) who was to transcribe them for solo piano – versions which demand almost superhuman virtuosity. As Malcolm MacDonald writes in his booklet essay, Stradal’s versions ‘transform these revolutionary orchestral compositions into viable and effective piano works, faithfully preserving their masterly musical substance’.

‘Stradal was one of those composers whose transcriptions I assumed would never be recorded due to the technical demands placed on the player. However... Risto-Matti Marin is more than up to the challenge and brings [Les Préludes] off with considerable aplomb...  [...]   sometimes the orchestral version [of Heroïde Funèbre] seems not to hold together.  However, here in the hands of Risto-Matti Marin the piece works very well as a cohesive whole... [...] I can’t imagine a better performance of  [Die Ideale]...  I would award this accolade to the other pieces on the disc as well... a fantastic CD very well recorded with a lovely piano sound and an interesting set of booklet notes.  I am very much looking forward to the next volumes’

Jonathan Welsh - Liszt Society UK Newsletter - March/April 2011


"Marin is in splendid form throughout ... this adds a munificent chapter to Liszt’s complete solo piano works."
