‘I waited a long time before listening to interpretations of the Sonata in B minor by my great predecessors, the masters of the art – all so different. For I very quickly made the Sonata my story, so caught up was I in the event I was living through. This sonata can be all things to all people, according to the inspiration, the character, the mood of the performer; it can follow the instant, the fleeting sentiment, or be straight-backed and noble! Every interpretation is different, yet they all remain the Liszt Sonata.’
From the B minor Sonata to the Wagner transcriptions, the Romanticism of Franz Liszt finds an outstanding interpreter in Roger Muraro. Accustomed to conceiving chords as colours, the pianist transports us from shadows to light with highly nuanced playing, dazzling energy and prodigious virtuosity.
