Paul Wee on Thalberg's piano music

Friday, November 6, 2020

A complete recording of Sigismond Thalberg's L'Art du chant appliqué au piano makes a powerful statement for this pianist's second outing on record

Following his Gramophone Award short-listed recording of Charles Valentin Alkan's Symphony and Concerto for solo piano (BIS), Paul Wee takes on another challenging work of the piano literature, Sigismond Thalberg's L'Art du chant appliqué au piano. Gramophone's Reviews Editor, Tim Parry – himself a pianophile – talked to Paul about the recording, Thalberg's piano music and how he balances his piano playing with his 'day job'.
