Recorded live on May 22nd, 2010 in Leiden, Holland.
There is nothing much about this piece except that it is completely awesome! Those beginning chords are sure to captivate any soul who dares to listen to them. The feel of a gypsy and romantic tale come flowing out of Lisitsa’s take of Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2. Taking the word romantic literally this time, this piece is played like a love poem. From the sweet and soft textures to the happy and fast rhythm near the end shows that this piece is one of a kind played by a one of a kind virtuoso. I always enjoy Valentina Lisitsa’s technique for piano and overall feel. It certainly brightens up my day.
