For his second recording, the young pianist Michail Lifits has devoted himself to the two great piano sonatas D. 894 und D. 845 von Franz Schubert. Lifits's masterly sensual and versatile playing never imposes, but rather leads one seductively on an inner voyage.

 

Here Schubert’s music is experienced with a phenomenal and passionate intensity which is never simply expressed, it truly moves. With his superior sense for form and for Schubert’s long phrasing, Michail Lifits leads us majestically and yet sensitively through an ocean of timbres and the most delicate of nuances.

 

Lifits is a conjurer of sounds, who does not shy from fathoming the music’s extremes, nor from taking the instrument to its extremes to accomplish this.

 

“Here is a young pianist at work who clearly is not made of grand gestures, glamour or media coverage. (...) One may confidently expect very much from this pianist."  FONO FORUM
