Andor Foldes


In stock

The approach of Andor Foldes’s playing is in the way he articulates every note of each piece. Beethoven played a significant role in the pianist’s life, inspired by his idol Wilhelm Backhaus. His Liszt’s Sonata dazzles with its clarity and precision. As a imaginative pianist, Foldes does great honor to himself and to the music he serves. He is a pianist very much worth investigating.

A Francfort, le Hongrois Andor Földes (1913-1992) prodigue en 1950 (Sonate no 25) et 1952 (Sonate no 9) un Beethoven solide. Une sonate de Liszt captée à Brême en 1968 vaut cependant le détour pour son savant dosage entre trajectoire calculée et esprit d’improvisation.
