LISZT: Beethoven Symphony No. 9 (Transcription) (Liszt Complete Piano Music,
Vol. 21). Naxos 8.557366

Artist(s): Konstantin Scherbakov

Franz Liszt was one of Beethoven's gre­ate­st champions and admirers, and
his acclaimed transcriptions of the master's nine symphonies stand as testament

attention to detail and intimate understanding of Beethoven's com­pos­itions

musical achievements. The transcription recorded here is perhaps
Beethoven's most well-known work, his Symphony No. 9. The performance is by
none other than the legendary Konstantin Scherbakov, who has been hailed as the
modern Rachmaninov since he won the first Rachmaninov competition in Moscow
in 1983.
