Piemontesi’s ‘Liszt Transcendental Etudes & Piano Sonata’ is Crescendo Magazine’s Album of the Year

Liszt Transcendental Etudes & Piano Sonata, performed by Francesco Piemontesi, was selected as the Album of the Year by Crescendo Magazine.

“This year, the recording of the year is awarded to the Liszt recording (Transcendental Études S. 139 and Piano Sonata in B minor S. 178) performed by Francesco Piemontesi (Pentatone). It’s an album with remarkable editorial coherence that completely renews the approach and perception of these masterpieces, cornerstones of the piano repertoire, while honoring the tremendous artistic evolution of this former laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition (2007). Francesco Piemontesi is gradually building a major discography of our time through his releases.”
