Product Notes

Powerful visions in bold and vivid colors create musical drama! Beethoven's Pathétique Sonata can be tragic and the Love and Death scene from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde - heart-breaking. Prokofiev's Visions display fantasy, charm and wit and his one-movement Third Sonata reveals how impetuous this composer can be at the piano. Schubert is majestic and triumphant in his Wandererfantasie, constructing his grand dramatic vision from a simple theme from one of his beautiful songs. Chopin dreams of moonlit evenings with his nocturnal vision. And then there is the razzle-dazzle of the virtuoso Franz Liszt who knows how to tell a story at the keyboard like nobody else- Mephisto and Faust dancing wildly at the Village Inn! Ah- the power of drama- tragedy, fantasy, bravura- all created from the composer's imagination and in brilliant colors of sweeping sound! "This is a full-blooded player, perfect for the repertory from Beethoven on. However, she also has a sharp and questing musical intelligence. Nissman never gives you a reading like everyone else's. Not only is she an individual, but she doesn't keep 'her' interpretation static. She combines passion and intelligence." "Nissman plays superbly." "Listening to these recitals is to be reminded of what is now generally held to be a bygone era. With so many musicians focusing on the notes rather than what actually lies behind them, Nissman gives an object lesson in musical semantics. Time and time again she finds a way of subtly articulating important musical events in a way that illuminates the music that surrounds them."
