Bertrand Chamayou piano
First part of Bertrand Chamayou's carte blanche line-up, at the height of Romanticism with the poetry of Schubert, Mendelssohn and Liszt
After his triumphant performance of Ravel's complete works for piano, Bertrand Chamayou ushers us into his favourite worlds. For this first, resolutely Romantic evening, we find two of the composers he likes best and on which his reputation is built: Mendelssohn and Liszt. Of the former, to whom he remains very attached, he has chosen the lyrical Songs Without Words. The Hungarian composer is represented by admirable transcriptions of a charming Petrarch Sonnet and Venice and Naples. The wonderful French pianist reveals the gentle swaying, the anxious cantabile and the effervescence of this precious triptych.
