5.0 out of 5 stars Jando's Meritorious "Swiss" August 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
By recording all of Liszt's Years of Pilgrimage, Jeno Jando is a respectable advocate of Liszt's piano music. Many commercial pianists draw upon a few commonplace pieces from the "Pilgrimage" suites to fill their recital discs, but not many are devoted to recording each suite. Jando joins the league of pianists who have done so: Ish-Hurwitz, Arrau, Howard, and some others I cannot recall. Naxos has favored Jando's pianism in their "Complete Piano Music of Liszt" series and although Jando can be an uneven interpreter with some composers, he is at his best with the music of Liszt.

Published in 1855, Liszt's "Swiss" suite is actually a revision of pieces from the Album d'un Voyageur, a collection Liszt began composing as far back as 1835. The present "Swiss" suite is a significant body of work from the 19th-century piano literature. Here Liszt not only operates from the salon virtuoso tradition, but becomes a serious composer who presages Debussy with his evocative musical depictions of nature and pastoral scenes. Jando possesses an acute ability to mold his performance style to this multifaceted suite. Jando commands the magisterial arpeggios of "The Chapel of William Tell" with grandeur and passion. He gives an exceptional delivery of the serene "At the Lake of Wallenstadt" and Schumannesque "Pastorale." The subsequent "Beside a Spring" is an astounding musical example of Liszt's powers of manipulating figurations and texture to suggest trickling water. Jando plays this a little bit faster and louder than other pianists, but this interpretation in no way detracts from the overall impact of the delicate piece.

Strangely enough, Liszt did not compose the dramatic and flashy "Storm" piece for the earlier Album d'un Voyageur.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liszt's Annees de Pelerinage, Vol.1 Switzerland September 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This is a fine set of the piano pieces that make up the three `Years of Pilgrimage' as Liszt described them as he travelled around Europe as a concert pianist. Seven of the nine pieces that make up the first collection were composed in Switzerland in 1835/36. Their composition was inspired by the birth of Liszt's baby daughter Blandine with one of his mistresses, Catherine Méran. Two further pieces were composed between 1848 and 1854 after Liszt had taken up with a new mistress in Weimar. With titles like `Beside a spring' and `The bells of Geneva' they portray their scenes very effectively.

The second year of seven pieces comes from Italy during the years 1837 to 1849 under the inspiration of his then companion Marie d'Agoult. This set includes three pieces woven around the theme of three Petrarch sonnets - numbers 47, 104 and 123. Number 47 starts `BLEST be the year, the month, the hour, the day' as the poet pours out his heart to his beloved. Sonnet 104 starts `War I cannot wage, yet I find no peace' and in sonnet 123 Liszt is turning to his religious bent: `I saw on earth angelic grace'. This second year of pieces also includes the more substantial 15-minute `fantasia in sonata form' inspired by reading Dante.

The third year of travel comprises seven more pieces reflecting on Liszt's encounters in Italy. The set begins with a prayer to his guardian angels. Then there are three pieces inspired by the Villa d'Este, reflecting the peace and beauty of his surroundings there. There are two pieces reflecting Liszt's Hungarian roots and we end with another piece of religious reflection - the sursum corda. The set is sensitively played by the Hungarian pianist Jenö Jando to provide nearly three hours of very satisfying music if you can gert hold of all three CDs. Alternatively, Jorge Bolet's touch in these essentially sensitive pieces is quite incomparable so this is a more than adequate alternative, though rather more expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Of Love, Loss and the Bells of Geneva July 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Hart Crane was overcome one day by finding some love letters that had been penned by his grandmother. In response, he wrote:

"Over the greatness of such space
Steps must be gentle.
It is all hung by an invisible white hair.
It trembles as birch limbs webbing the air.

And I ask myself:

`Are your fingers long enough to play
Old keys that are but echoes:
Is the silence strong enough
To carry back the music to its source
And back to you again
As though to her?'"

Crane's question is this: do we have the right to intrude upon so holy a domain?

Liszt's Years of Pilgrimage I is not dissimilar. It embodies - not recalls - his relationship with Countess Marie d'Agoult, which blazed and died like a supernova. Sure, he published the work to the ends of the earth, but it is a travesty to approach it as another virtuoso warhorse.

If Alpha and Omega are sovereign in the cosmos, what is the terminus of such a love affair? Does it have any purchase on Eternity? Once the last ember fades and dies out, does anything remain other than a handful of dust?

Do what I did. Purchase this recital. Fall in love with a buxom wench. Walk on the sun. And if it passes into the nothingness, at least you will have this keepsake at hand as you muse forensically on "love, shipwreck and other disasters."
