From Wigmore Hall
We are delighted to announce the release of two more new CDs on our Wigmore Hall Live label, both are available to order now priced at just £9.99 each (plus 50p postage & packing).
Following the tragically early death of this remarkable singer we are delighted to release a recording of one of Lorraine Hunt Lieberson’s best concerts at the Hall. Recorded in 1998 this recital features songs by her two ‘signature’ composers – Mahler and Handel, and also songs by her husband Peter Lieberson, who took much of his inspiration from her exquisite voice. This CD is not only our heartfelt tribute to a lady who touched everyone who heard her, but is also a must for anyone who looks to be moved by the music they hear.
Recorded in 1993 this CD epitomises all that Cherkassky was renowned for – his prodigious talent, idiosyncratic interpretations and unfailingly thrilling performances. Featuring works by Rameau, Chopin, Liszt, Hindemith and Lennox Berkeley it shows why Cherkassky is fondly described as the last of the great Romantics. This CD is a must-have, not just for piano aficionados, but for anyone likes to be taken on an exciting and enjoyable journey in the comfort of their own home.
