Alessandro Taverna (pf) SommSOMMCD0605
This latest album from the young Italian pianist Alessandro Taverna comprises recordings of highly demanding repertoire captured live at the UK’s Turner Sims 2018/19 Piano Series.
There is poetry as well as virtuosity in Taverna’s vocabulary, even if some of the lines in the Bach/Rachmaninov Gigue (BWV 1006) are over-accentuated. The Liszt Réminiscences de Don Juan brings great atmosphere and harmonic engagement, though there is a slight tendency for the lower frequencies to blur. Some Schubert/Liszt songs act as counterweight: ‘Gretchen’ is gentle and lyrical, but her pulse needs to race a bit more; ‘Erlkönig’ has a rather lumbering climax.
Liszt’s Rigoletto Paraphrase exudes fantasy; the Johann Strauss II/Dohnányi Schatz-Walzer seems so clean and clear in comparison. Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue is given an intelligent reading, full of verve. An interesting recital.
