Although highly productive and respected in his lifetime as a composer of Lieder, Robert Franz (1815–92) has since become a peripheral figure in music history. One reason may be that he avoids dramatic contrasts and instead aims at an emotional ambiguity: ‘My representation of joy is always tinged with melancholy, whilst that of suffering is always accompanied by an exquisite sensation of losing oneself’, he once wrote to Liszt. As a consequence his music appeals to those who are able ‘to admire the nuances of a charcoal drawing without longing for the colours of a painting’, to quote from Georges Starobinski’s liner notes to this recording. As they began to explore the songs of Franz, Starobinski and the baritone Christian Immler were moved by their findings to devise a programme which includes 23 of the composer’s often quite brief songs. Using the poet Heinrich Heine as their guiding star, they present these – all Heine settings but from different opus groups – in the form of two ‘imagined’ song cycles.

Throughout his long and distinguished career Georges Cziffra arguably has championed Franz Liszt more than any other pianist of the 20th century. Like the composer, Cziffra was a virtuoso who understood that the score is just a point of departure and that the impact of the performance depends more so on the depth of interpreters imagination and skill. While many have performed these seminal works over the years few are as dazzling, insightful, and simply stylish as this fiery Hungarian. Brace yourself.

Equally adept with both the cello and organ, Alexander Knyazev, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory specializing in cello and Nizhny Novgorod Conservatory specializing in organ has long focused on the organ and cello repertory of J.S. Bach. Lauded for his innate musicality and interpretative skills, Knyazevs first public acclaim came as a cellist. This collection presents the rarely performed chorale preludes composed by Bach during his stay in Leipzig in the last decade of his life and not published until after his death. Recorded in 2012 in the Riga Cathedral in Latvia renowned for its historic pipe organ.

There's nothing at all wrong with Maurizio Pollini's 2009 performance of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. The Italian pianist's intellectual lucidity, interpretive clarity, and technical virtuosity are apparent in every prelude and fugue, and his probing insights and penetrating analysis inform every note. However, there is almost nothing right with the sound quality of the recording. The piano sounds too distant, making it hard to hear precisely what Pollini is doing, but oddly, the ambient sound is too present, making every extraneous noise too loud. One should not hear the pedals being pressed and lifted, much less the clatter of the hammers and the twanging of the strings above the sound of the music. Worse yet, one can hear what sounds like every breath Pollini takes nearly as loudly as every note he plays. These are all grievous flaws that should have been eliminated, and their presence fatally undermines the brilliance of Pollini's performances. A reengineered version of these performances would be most welcome, but the present recording is so flawed that it virtually destroys Pollini's playing.

Liszt's Piano Sonata in B minor is one of the seminal works of the Romantic piano repertoire and one of the most technically challenging pieces any pianist can undertake. Continuing this virtuosic theme, and demonstrating his great ambition as a pianist of the highest calibre, Lazaridis also presents Liszt's Grandes études de Paganini. This six-part composition, based on themes originally composed for violin by Niccolò Paganini, again places huge demands on the technical and interpretive abilities of the performer.
