About the album
Anniversaries are just great! The bicentenary of the birth of Franz Liszt - outstanding, hero-worshipped artist, star of the romantic 19th century - has given Joseph Moog the chance to present an anthology of rare transcriptions and paraphrases. Throughout this generous programme, the young virtuoso takes us along previously virtually unexplored paths, with evocations of Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Rossini, and settings such as a cathedral, an opera, a ball, or the delicate intimacy of a Romantic salon, illustrating Franz Liszt’s extraordinary versatility in every situation. As a complement to these transcriptions and paraphrases, Joseph Moog chose the second Ballade, rare testimony of the introverted Liszt, contrasting with the sparkling Valse-Impromptu that closes this outstanding recital.
