It is always a pleasure for me to introduce a new album by Josep Colom. He is a poetic artist whose performances never fit the traditional mould; in a world of dazzling virtuosity and unbelievable speed and precision, Colom seems to belong to another time, a time where the performer’s personality used to shine with each note played.
That is what makes this album so exciting and unique to me: when listening to Liszt monumental Sonata through the prism of Colom’s vision, you enter a new sonic world where the spiritual side of Liszt’s genius illuminates the whole piece. As with all recordings made with Josep Colom in the outstanding Symphonic Hall in Zaragoza, Spain, a 1957 Steinway piano was used; a piano that it is full of nuances, a piano with a glorious wood timbre from another time.
