Notes and Editorial Reviews

The pianist Maciej Pikulski has been exclusive accompanist to José van Dam for more than ten years now, and has also appeared alongside Felicity Lott, Renée Fleming, Udo Reinemann, Edith Wiens, and María Bayo.

So, for his first solo, he has had the idea of combining the refinement of the songs of Schubert, in tandem with two young singers, with the 'transfigured' style of the same lieder in their solo piano versions by Franz Liszt. Liszt was a pioneer in the diffusion of Schubert's songs. With his aura and sensibility, he was able during his 'years of transcendental performance' to introduce them to audiences in Budapest, Leipzig, Berlin, London, St Petersburg and Read more elsewhere. This CD testifies to that immense influence. Read less
