Yury Martynov

The Russian pianist Yury Martynov presents here the second volume of the complete recording he has undertaken of the cycle of the Beethoven symphonies as transcribed for the piano by Franz Liszt. For both the pianist and his listeners, this recording constitutes a genuine adventure, combining the creative genius of Beethoven, the inspired vision of these works of the composer and pianist Franz Liszt, and a piano with the same sonic resources as were available to Liszt.

Here is what Liszt had to say about the piano as a medium of transcription: ‘In the compass of its seven octaves, it can produce, with only a few exceptions, all the characteristics, all the combinations, all the most learned compositional figures, and leaves the orchestra no other advantages than those . . . of diversity of timbre and massed effects.’ For these two symphonies, Yury Martynov has chosen the same Érard piano of 1837 on which he recorded the first volume of this series.

That CD – Symphonies nos. 6 and 2 / ZZT301 – received a particularly warm welcome from the press (‘Choc’ de Classica, May 2012).

Listening to these stunning accounts by the Russian pianist Yury Martynov, it's difficult to believe at times that only two hands are playing...Martynov never fails to play with admirable warmth and imagination. His 1937 Erard piano is an object of great beauty. Altogether, very impressive.” BBC Music Magazine September 2012
