Sounds and sweet airs…Beethoven might or might not have said that his Piano Sonata Op.31 No.2 was inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, but Liszt was unambiguous. And from the devilish delights of the Mephisto Waltz to a heaven-storming homage to Dante, it’s all about the imagination: a thrilling return for the “power, poetry and formidable technique” of the young Hungarian pianist Daniel Lebhardt.
