Notes and Editorial Reviews

With critical descriptions such as 'passionate and poetic' and 'masterful', Matthew Cameron has emerged as one of the major pianistic talents of his generation, and is particularly associated with the music of Liszt. His command of this technically difficult and highly romantic repertoire is demonstrated on this disc, which includes not only Liszt's hugely demanding Don Juan Fantasy and some all-time Liszt favourites, but two of Cameron's own transcriptions of Liszt orchestral works. A feast for lovers of pianistic poetry and pyrotechnichs.
