“Some rhetorical declamatory passages really need live performance to pull off their theatricality, but Giorgini enlivens then with both high drama and thoughtful interiority.”
Liszt: Harmonies poétiques et religieuses from Saskia Giorgini received a 5-star review and has been selected as Instrumental Choice by BBC Music Magazine. Reviewed by Natasha Loges.
“Giorgini’s affinity with this reflective music is evident from the outset. Formidable technical ability is matched by the architectural sense, harmonic sensibility and coloristic range this sprawling music demands. Her shaping of climaxes demonstrates complete control of pace and dynamics, on on a Bösendorfer which never sounds brash.”
“This fine recording demands that the listener draw the curtains on a wintry evening, pour a glass of something delicious and complex, and let Giorgini guide us across Liszt’s expansive spiritual landscapes.”
Liszt: Harmonies poétiques et religieuses received a 5-star review for performance and a 5-star review for recording.
