Divisive and common. At first glance, appear light in main course of differentiation here, the introverted Apolline Frédéric Chopin, as the Dionysian Virtuoso assoluto Franz Liszt.
The charge of non-uniform, if the violation had to be both B minor sonatas – Chopin’s third Piano Sonata Opus 58 from the year 1844, and Liszt’s monumental work in the same key-movement of 1852/53 – long fallen, albeit to varying degrees. Rich and extravagantly are the issues that occur when they were forgetting to submit to any form requirements.
To hear both works together, played by the excellent pianist Margarita Höhenrieder is the attraction of this production.
Born in Munich, Margarita Höhenrieder is without doubt one of the most brilliantpianists of our time. A highly esteemed soloist and chamber musician, she has performed with many celebrated orchestras, including the Symphony Orchestra of Bavarian Radio, the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the Staatskapelle of Dresden, the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig, the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, under conductors like Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, James Levine, Fabio Luisi, and Lorin Maazel, to name only a few.
Currently the artist is recording in Vienna a new production “Mozart & Schumann with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Fabio Luisi, which will be released in Spring 2011 for the Label Solo Musica.
