Match made in heaven: Iván Fischer brings us Liszt and Mahler

‘Liszt reincarnated’, that’s how Le Monde described Alexandre Kantorow. This young pianist has electrifying fingers! Together with Iván Fischer he makes sparks fly in Liszt's Second Piano Concerto – which Kantorow recorded on CD at the age of 19. Fischer then leads his agile orchestra through Mahler's Fourth Symphony, in which everything gets bathed in a soothing light. Is it any wonder that this apotheosis of song leads to a singer imaging heavenly life and a heavenly feast?
