Liszt - Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6 in D-flat major
This is up.
An excellent performance, with much expression and sensation again. On what instrument did you play this? Sounds like a nice Steinway or Bösendorfer grand.
It´s a pleasure to listen to such profi-recordings here.
Thanks for all your compliment.
The piano is a grand Steinwey model D
I love this piece! It's the first piece written by Liszt that I ever learned.
This was very good!
If I might make a small stylistic comment? .... it doesn't feel very wild. It is accurate and well interpreted, but it felt 'safe' to me. I find Liszt benefits from that rollercoaster ambience. You know ... is it gonna fly off the tracks? am I gonna die? .... we love that adrenaline kicking feel from the pianist of a barely controlled ferocity. In your interpretation, I never felt that at any time ... on the other hand, it was an extremely controlled performance.
This very well could just be my humble and off-the-mark opinion though. I still enjoyed it! good job! and welcome btw.
Funny! We know you like that! ( btw - it's been a long time - when can we hear you play again?)
I have to admit something - I did not listen to this all the way through when I was putting it up, because I was very busy. But after reading these comments, I did listen to the whole thing, and all I can say is, Wow!!! What an end. And sorry, Nathan, but I think it is quite a 'kick-ass' performance. If this can be played with even more ferocity, I'd like to hear it.
My likings of Cziffra ebb and flow depending on the piece he is playing (or slaughtering). His recordings of this rhapsody are ferocious indeed. (Although I don't care for his interpretation and alteration of the composition).
Well....I don't know how to say...but I'm sure about 1 thing....
After 2 years from this recording I can say that I play really better this Rhapsody, but I think it's normal....practice, practice and practice. Specially the interpretation is more interesting now....but is only my opinion....when I'll have the opportunity to play it again i'll post here.
yeah, i'm mostly in bed these days ... awaiting 2nd back surgery *sigh* so, as soon as I can sit at piano again I'll be posting more mediocrity to be ruthlessly skewered by the critics! 8)
