Label: Decca
Nelson Freire might be the greatest -- or at least most lauded -- living Liszt ambassador; this imaginative program brilliantly celebrates the composer's 200th birthday. There's a fiery authority to these performances, from the brisk, lyrical adrenaline of the opening Waldesrauschen No. 1 to the highly dramatic Valse Oubliée. Still, everything gets a thorough and critical examination, evident in the elastic tempos and aggressive lower registers of the Hungarian Rhapsody No. 3. Brilliant, bombastic and inspired, this inspires awe for both the material and its interpreter.
