Customer Reviews

Fantastic!Heard Lisitsa on the radio playing the Moonlight and I thought "wow." A casual approach to the first movement seems to me exactly what B had in mind instead of the schmaltzy guff we get from just about every other pianist. She must have fingers of steel to play the last movement at breakneck speed. Haven't heard the other pieces but I expect those performances to be just as terrific. Looked on her website for concert dates and didn't see any for the rest of the year. Maybe next year.5Would rather have had the tracks ordered as originally played ...Would rather have had the tracks ordered as originally played in the live concert, but that's a minor quibble. Lisitsa's personal story is inspiring and she plays as well as anybody alive. Buy this album.5Love this pianist-you can't go wrong with her!I have recently discovered Valentina through her Rachmaninov CDs and I love her piano-playing. I will continue to buy her collections as they are the best representation I have of most composers.5Wow!The power and musicality of Valentina Lisitsa is extraordinary. Wonderful interpretation! Audio quality is good.5Five StarsShe knows her Rachmaninoff. Worth adding to the collection.5Amazing.I'm so glad I stumbled upon Ms. Lisita's work. She is certainly accomplished, but the depth and range of emotion she brings to the piano is awe-inspiring. She pushes the instrument to it's maximum, and it almost makes one fearful the instrument will simply collapse under her command. If you have the chance, watch some of her YouTube clips, especially the one in the London subway...that someone could make a tinny, old piano sound like a work not of this world, is truly something to behold. You will appreciate her talent and craft even more.5Beautiful WorkI love Ms. Lisitsa's work. Her technique is flawless and she has a beautiful touch. You cannot go wrong with this or any of her recordings.5Lisitsa certainly doesn't disappoint!It's amazing! The album contains a really interesting version of Chopin's Nocturne Op. 9, No. 2. (It's actually a later, lesser known revision or embellishment by Chopin himself.) It also contains a bunch of other favourites. I was definitely not disappointed. There's a sort of caged power in the way her left hand executes the livelier of the Rachmaninoff preludes she tackles, and her rendition of Liszt's La Campanella is clean and crisp. The compilation is filled with enough musicality to keep the enthusiast relaxed and entertained, and more than enough depth to keep the scholar in deep consideration. Love it!5Bravo!Listen to the incredible performance of Valentina Lisitsa!5Valentina's Landmark ConcertPianist magazine (no 72) recounts the low point for Lisitsa and her pianist husband, Alexei Kuznetsoff, several years ago with no clear career direction, no record label interested in her and considering "ordinary jobs." She thought, "Hey, if Justin Beiber can do it (launch his own career), then I can do it!" They proceeded to shoot amateur home video of her playing fiery pieces like LIszt's La Campanella" and Rachmaninov's OP. 39 in A minor and posted to U-Tube. The rest is history as budding pianists and new fans around the world flocked to her by the millions making her an internet sensation.After signing with Decca in May 2012, she sold out the Royal Albert concert in June that year which 100,000 viewers also tuned in on-line with a twist - they voted on the program she was to play that night. Talk about novel. That performance is recorded on this CD and, like the debuts of Martha Argerich, Kissin or Lang Lang, this debut will likely be remembered in history as Lisitsa is no average pianist - but clearly one of the greats of her generation. And, by the way, she is not among the newest generation insanely talented pianists, but (in 2013) already nearing 40. She is someone who has worked hard, dedicated her life to performance and found a creative way to gain a global audience after years of paying her dues.The on-line audience chose well as this program is superb. I call it "The Beauty and The Beasts" as the beauties are abundant and supreme in the repertoire while the beasts quickly sort out the pianist who dare attempt them and reward the audience immensely.For beauty, she gives us a breath-taking Liszt etude in D flat and Austrian-elegant Liebestraum in A flat, Rachmaninov's B minor lento prelude along with no less that three dreamy Chopin Nocturnes. Additionally, the middle movement of the Beethoven reveals just-right poise and lilt before the explosion of the volatile third movement which is an excellent example of her fabulous technique (clear, precise, flawless). And who says the Beethoven piece that inspired millions of starting pianists over the last 200 years (Fur Elise) is not a concert piece as her ability to draw out the emotion of a piece shows here. It certainly was a crowd pleaser that night as is for many listeners. What intermediate pianist would not want her rendition as the example in their head to emulate?The Beasts are daunting: The Moonlight last movement, the opening G minor prelude and "La campanella" etude by Rachmaninov and especially the "Little Red RIding Hood" which is a must-see (along with La Campanella) on U-Tube as it is what started her relationship with the global internet audience.The American dream lives on at least for one Ukrainian national who makes her home here now and is acheiving success when it looked like it would not come. Starting playing at age three, self-taught as she grew up in modest beginnings, studied at Kiev Conservatoire and then moved to America to study together at the Southern Methodist Univ in Dallas where she started winning various competitions. Mortgaging their house, she hired the LSO to record the Rach concertos which Decca later signed on to launch. Sounding with her thick Eastern Euro accent a bit like a Russian Bond girl, Valentina is unmistakable, very like able and a force of nature in her presence and abilities at the keyboard. She is a favorite with younger audiences especially who find her immensely approachable. She is of the Russian school in some ways clearly as her affinity with Rachmaninov is unmistakeable; in other ways, she is her own artist. Her favorite pianist is William Backhaus while the one composer she would chose if she could only play one is Liszt. It is hard not to like this wonderful pianist who is become "a people's pianist."The Decca recording has generally clear, fine piano sound for her Bosendorfer model 290. It could be better but it's ok. However, at least in my CD, there is some definite background "hiss" that you hear as a song starts but not after. It might be just limited to some discs and not overall recording issue, but it is a live recording which might explain it. But not to worry really. Also to note there is a DVD of this concert which is well liked as well with good camera work. This rich performance was a highlight for me this year and vaulted to my favorite, frequently played bin. Compositions - 5 stars; Performance - 5 stars; Sound - 4.5 stars.5
