Composer: Chopin, Liszt & Scriabin

With Luisada nothing can ever be taken for granted and here he puts the ‘wow’ factor back into three virtuoso war-horses. The range of colours he magics from the piano is nothing short of awesome. Whether playing flat out in the maniacal fugal section of Liszt’s B minor Sonata or conjuring up half-lit soundscapes in Chopin’s Third, you can’t help but be swept along by the sheer force of his mesmerising artistry.
