The Beethoven Orchestra Bonn and the pianist Claudius Tanski present a collection celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Liszt. Works include the Overture to Goethe’s Torquato Tasso and Totenanz. An orchestration of La lugubre gondola by John Adams is a finely nuanced extra.
“Tanski plays the shorter pieces with deep, ringing tone and musical insight. He underlines the Expressionist aspects of the first La lugubre gondola, just as the orchestra did in the second...The piano registers handsomely throughout.” Music Web
