Grandeur. Brilliance. Beauty.

Bertrand Chamayou finds the magic behind the fireworks in a programme devoted to Franz Liszt at his most dramatic.

Franz Liszt was music’s original global superstar: a daredevil of the keyboard who left audiences yelling for more, and under whose lightning fingers there was no realm of the imagination that the piano couldn’t conquer. His own musical vision ranged from the opera house to the Swiss lakes; from Dante’s Inferno to the realm of the Holy Grail. It’s passionate, ecstatic and little short of epic.

Like Liszt, the French pianist Bertrand Chamayou is a musician of almost superhuman skill who prefers to find the inner beauty beneath even the most dazzling keyboard showpiece. ‘There is a nobility and elegance about Liszt’s music’ he says – and few modern interpreters are better equipped to uncover it.

‘With Liszt, the instrument disappears and the music reveals itself.’ – Heinrich Heine
