More Info:

Following his critically acclaimed debut Liszt Transfigured: Operatic Fantasies for Piano, which won the 40th Liszt Ferenc International Grand Prix du Disque in 2018, Chiyan Wong returns to record his second album for Linn. Alongside the piano music of Liszt, the music of Ferruccio Busoni has been a guiding light for the young, eclectic pianist. Here Chiyan combines Busoni's kaleidoscopic arrangement of Bach's famous Goldberg Variations, which celebrates the powerful sonority and range of the modern concert grand, with Bach's timeless original. Chiyan's 'dazzling technical finish' (Gramophone) and luxuriant sound are on full display in Busoni's arrangement of Bach's famous Chaconne, a classic in the genre. Inversion, mirroring and variations are also idiomatic devices in Busoni's Sonatina 'in diem Nativitatis Christi MCMXVII and Chiyan's own 'composition etude', Inversion of Variation 15 (Canone alla quinta), which complete this one-of-a-kind programme.
