Liszt was famed for indulgence and hedonism, a disposition that arguably finds its way into parts of his music. Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1 lives up to the composer's outsized reputation with dizzying and dazzling runs up and down the keyboard. It's a piece written for a virtuoso, and soloist Mihaela Ursuleasa is up to the task. Conductor Riccardo Sahiti praised her as "an unbelievably gifted soloist" who delivered a performance "full of feeling and character." Author: Greg Wiser Editor: Rick Fulker…read more
