LISZT Après une lecture du Dante. Sonetto 104 del Petrarca. Funérailles. La leggierezza . Ballade No. 2 Christian Chamorel (pn) GALLO 1193 (57:08)


Chamorel (b. 1979) is a Swiss poised on the brink of an international career. The big Liszt pieces, in which others become lost, he seizes by the scruff with a domineering spirit, brilliance, and dynamism not lacking in poetry. Funérailles ’s central section may Read more be milked a bit, but La leggierezza is never less than giddily exciting, the Dante sonata bristles with steely menace, the Petrarch Sonnet is virile and straightforward (rather than, say, effusive, flighty, or confected), the Ballade is animated by brooding sweep. The mix is heady, there are refinements to come—which lends the recital added interest—but technically and expressively the essentials of great artistry are abundantly present. Sound is sharply detailed—owing to the pianist’s remarkable incisiveness—in a spacious aural frame. Enthusiastically recommended.
