Can Çakmur’s Liszt-Schubert: Schwanengesang has been selected as ‘Album of the Month’ on International Piano Magazine following his triumph as Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards this year.
Can Çakmur plays Liszt:
Turkish pianist Can Çakmur offers a revelatory view of Liszt the transcriber and Liszt the dark-hued prophet. Rarely can the scope of this composer’s extraordinary genius have been more potently caught. Çakmur’s superlative and unobtrusive technique expresses the deepest sense of poetry, while his booklet essay is as acute as it is evocative. This is an album to haunt the mind and imagination, and it is perfectly recorded by Swedish label BIS.
