About

BIS is proud to present a new disc from star pianist Yevgeny Sudbin who here combines works by Liszt, Ravel and Saint-SaŽns under the themes of Love, Delirium and Death.  

Funťrailles is Lisztís elegy for his Hungarian countrymen who died in the 1849 uprising against Habsburg Rule. Death also appears in Ravelís depiction of a hanging - Le Gibet (The Gallows) from Gaspard de la Nuit - and closes the programme in Saint-SaŽnsí Danse macabre.

Love is present in the Petrarch Sonnets - originally song settings of poems in which Petrarch immortalises the object of his unrequited passion - and Ravelís Ondine - the tale of a water nymph tempting a mortal to join her in the depths of the lake.

Delirium is present throughout the disc, especially during the nightmarish portrait of the goblin Scarbo.

Yevgeny Sudbin has received considerable critical acclaim for his recordings on BIS. His disc of music by Scriabin was described in BBC Music Magazine as being Ďas terrifyingly changeable and emotionally all-engulfing as the music itselfí.
