Caroline Fischer – “Lisztomagia”

Released 20.03.2009

“Atmospherically dense sonority […], marked sensibility […] her enormous serenity which wins one over, the plasticity and precision with which she shapes chains of chords, octaval transpositions, runs and the rhythmical complexity.”
Aron Sayed,, 31. Juli 2009

“Her approach to Liszt is shaped by the musical line, she focuses on the transparency and structure, whether it be in the magnificent transcriptions of songs by Schubert or Schumann in the dissembling Mephisto Waltz No.1.”
Peter Korfmacher, Leipziger Volkszeitung, 10. Juli 2009

“ Fischer satisfies all purity requirements, and invests drive and passion without losing that formal overview which these small, self-contained inner landscapes suggest to the interpreter. […] Caroline Fischer shows nerve, displays energetic attack and, with rhythmic elasticity, steers the first part onwards with clear contours. Then, with full pianistic vividness, she proceeds to execute the undulations of the B minor tremolos reminiscent of the second St. Francis Legend. Caroline Fischer knows how to build up to pivotional climaxes, and to master them with verve and a willingness to take risks. She understands – for instance at the start of the Mephisto Waltz – how to provoke an acrid atmosphere in marked contrast to the melancholically sentimental variations of the middle section.”
