Études: Piano Music of Liszt and Rachmaninoff
Robert Silverman, piano
In a world that sees wunderkinds of the piano come and go, Robert Silverman has reached a level of musical and technical authority that can only be accomplished after years of deep commitment to the instrument and its vast literature. Many aspects of Silverman's playing are frequently noted: a polished technique, an extraordinary range of tonal palette, an uncanny ability to sing his way into the heart of a phrase, and his probing interpretation of the most complex works in the repertoire.
Mr. Silverman has received a Grand Prix du Disque from the Liszt Society of Budapest for his recording of Liszt's piano music. He is an ideal interpreter of these famous pieces.
