Sung-Won Yang, Enrico Pace Liszt & Chopin - Cantique D'amour is KUSC: Download Of the Week

Bookmark and Share

This week we offer some exquisite chamber music as our Free Download. From Cantique d'amour, the new Liszt-Chopin release by the Korean cellist Sung-Won Yang and pianist Enrico Pace.

They were the greatest pianist-composers of their time, almost exact contemporaries and friends, although the warmth was more on the side of the generous-hearted Franz Liszt (1811-86) than the sickly Frédéric Chopin (1810-49). Having met soon after Chopin arrived in Paris in 1831, they made music together in public several times. They were a study in contrasts, Liszt at the height of his extrovert, virtuoso period, Chopin introverted, delicate, almost a salon pianist. Musically they had arrived from different directions. The two men had one trait in common: they composed hardly any chamber music, so on; Cantique d'amour, Sung-Won Yang chased down some arrangements to flesh out his regular partner, Italian pianist Enrico Pace.
