A gimmicky programme? The Schumann dedicated to Chopin, the Chopin to Liszt and the Liszt to Schumann? Well if so, this reviewer cannot wait for Angelich’s next gimmick. Without a hint of barnstorming or virtuosity for its own sake, each work is focused, poised and full of life: the Liszt sonata is especially impressive, more expansive than we have become used to of late, allowed plenty of time to breathe and to glow. The playing time is as generous as the recording is excellent.
