On ‘Chants nostalgiques’, pianist Luiza Borac comes up trumps with an ingenious combination of song transcriptions including several premieres: Liszt's arrangements of classic Schubert lieder, Rachmaninov’s takes on Kreisler, Luiza’s own transcription of Tárrega’s timeless Requerdos de la Alhambra, the first recording of the title track by Constantin Silvestri, and a revelatory first release of historical recordings by legendary Romanian tenor Ion Buzea, supplemented with Luiza’s present-day piano.

Luiza Borac has received international accolades for her committed performances of the music of fellow Romanians George Enescu and Dinu Lipatti, as well as for the prowess of her research and programming.
