Marc-André Hamelin returns to Liszt with this imperious recording, containing works based on music by two composers who were a great influence on the young composer/pianist: the Paganini Etudes and three Schubert Marches. Paganini was the foremost virtuoso of his day, on any instrument, and having heard him in Paris in 1832 Liszt was determined to replicate his showmanship and mastery on the piano. His Etudes, based on Paganini's infamous Caprices (the nearest the violinist came to notating in full the extraordinary acrobatics he often improvised on stage), are the culmination of this early creative spark. Marc-André Hamelin plays the final 1851 version. Liszt was devoted to Schubert, and transcribed many of his songs for piano, as well as marches and other works; the three marches on this disc are based on various rarely heard Schubert marches for piano duet. Marc-André Hamelin's virtuosity is both nonchalant and dazzling, and he brings wit and sparkle to the Paganini Etudes, and great power and architechtural control to the Schubert Marches. A must for piano lovers everywhere.

THE 29TH INTERNATIONAL F.LISZT RECORD GRAND PRIX, HUNGARY ; 10 DE REPERTOIRE ; DISQUE DU MOIS (REPERTOIRE) ; CLASSICAL CD OF THE WEEK (THE SUNDAY TIMES)

'A technique that leaves one open-mouthed with wonderment … the delicate filigree of his rapid chromatic scales is as witty as his scales in tenths and double octaves are awesome' (The Sunday Times)

'A brilliantly successful recital' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Marc-André Hamelin’s technical mastery is legendary … All in all a remarkable disc and certainly not to be missed' (International Piano)

'More unbelievable pianism from Hamelin' (Classic FM Magazine)

'Dexterity here to make ears flap; but then, we are used to this from Hamelin' (Gramophone)

'It would be superfluous to recommend this – each new album by Marc-André Hamelin is a self-commending event' (Fanfare, USA)

'No need to worry about technical issues when Marc-André Hamelin attacks these Liszt transfigurations with all the brilliance in the world' (Pianist)

'Il faut louer Marc-André Hamelin pour la finesse de ces exécutions tres virtuoses, et surtout le remercier de permettre cette plongée au cour de ce jeu de références et emprunts musicaux qui avait cours parmi les plus grands compositeurs romantiques' (Répertoire, France)

'this is a thrilling recital, with some dazzling piano playing' (Hi-Fi Plus)
