Beatrice Berrut (piano)


In his life as in his work, Liszt’s music represents a stylised struggle between good and evil; light and darkness. His writing, which may at times be described as Manichean, nevertheless explores all the pains and joys that a human soul can experience and creates an unbreakable thread between feelings that are very remote from each other.

Liszt’s metanoia: his courageous path towards light and serenity, provides a touching and liberating example of a man who assumed his consuming passions and sublimated them in the works he created.

An intimate lecture of Liszt’s soul by Swiss pianist Béatrice Berrut, recorded in Paris by Nicolas Bartholomée on a Bösendorfer piano in April 2016.

“Berrut… proves a compelling advocate of Busoni’s organ-chorale transcriptions and then lifts the roof off with Escaich’s Baroque reappropriations” - Julian Haylock, BBC Music Magazine (Lux ćterna: Visions of Bach, AP100)
