Notes and Editorial Reviews

Deveau’s latest offering explores the interconnectedness of the lives and careers of three musical titans – Wagner, Liszt, and Brahms – juxtaposing Wagner and Liszt’s “music of the future” with the more traditional, established musical forms of Brahms.

R E V I E W S:

"On this recording, the pianist David Deveau gives a sensitive account of a fascinating solo piano transcription of Wagner’s “Siegfried Idyll,” originally written for chamber orchestra as a birthday gift for Cosima, Wagner’s wife. The arrangement is by Josef Rubinstein, a devoted assistant to Wagner. It’s a revelation to hear this sublime, intimate work played on the piano. The harmonic and contrapuntal intricacies come through with beautiful
Read more transparency. The album also offers refined, accomplished performances of three Liszt works, including “Funérailles,” and a well-chosen selection of seven capriccios and intermezzos by Brahms." -- Anthony Tommasini, NEW YORK TIMES [8/12/2015] Read less
