Denis Matsuev
It takes a pianist with “epic technique … superhuman speed, power, and agility” (The Boston Globe) to successfully embrace Liszt’s flash and Stravinsky’s high-octane excitement. Denis Matsuev is just the artist. Liszt’s Sonata unfolds in one massive movement with a deliriously virtuosic central section and whispering finale, while his Mephisto Waltz No. 1 is a rollicking showpiece. Stravinsky’s piano transcriptions of the “Russian Dance,” “Pétrouchka’s Room,” and “Shrovetide Fair” from his great ballet are stunning showpieces that also make daunting technical demands of the performer.
