Franz Liszt’s two piano concertos amply display both his extraordinary pianistic ability and his originality as an influential Romantic composer. The first is a path-breaking tour de force whose four movements, played without break and thematically linked, moved Bartók to acclaim it as 'the first perfect realisation of cyclic sonata form'. The second is equally brilliant but more integrated.
The Totentanz (Dance of Death), perhaps inspired by an Italian fresco, is a powerful series of variations on the Medieval Dies irae chant.
In 2005 Nebolsin won the First Richter International Piano Competition in Moscow and was awarded a special prize for the best performance of a Mozart piano concerto.
Nebolsin’s previous Naxos recording was critically well-received: 'Nebolsin is a Russian pianist with all of the technical skills necessary to handle this difficult music. More important is his musical ability to make far more of the Preludes than a mere splattering of notes and empty bravura.' - American Record Guide.
