Ferencz Liszt

Après une lecture du Dante, fantasia quasi sonata (Années de pèlerinage II, S. 161 No. 7) (Dante Sonata)

André Messager

Les Deux Pigeons


Jonathan Higgins (Piano)

Royal Ballet Sinfonia
Barry Wordsworth (Conductor)

“Les deux pigeons, with its prettily romantic and engagingly French music was refashioned by John Lanchbery, in favour of Ashton’s eternal triangle. The pigeons remain, to add a nice sentimental touch to the romantic reconciliation of the lovers. Wordsworth’s performance is most elegantly turned, and very agreeable listening. Lambert’s masterly transcription of Liszt’s Dante Sonata is a tour de force of romantic hyperbole … as it swings between gloomy intensity and sweet celestial romanticism … played with great conviction and ardour. (Both) scores are played with finesse, colour and commitment. The recording is excellent. Recommended.” (Gramophone)
