Maestro Pierpaolo Levi

In a Program of the 12 Transcendental Etudes of Franz Liszt

Pierpaolo Levi is an Italian pianist who specializes in the music of Franz Liszt. In 1989 he won first prize in the International Masters Competition, dedicated to Liszt and organized by one of the greatest Liszt exponents of the 20th century, Georges Cziffra. Two years later he won first prize in the Rendano Competition in Rome. 

His many concert tours have taken Maestro Levi all over Europe where he has performed the complete series of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies which were recorded by RAI Radio Italia.

Maestro Levi is a frequent visitor to Thailand. In 2011 he performed the Transcendental Etudes in the Cultural Center in Bangkok, finishing with a brilliant performance of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2 as an encore. Here is a video of the Rhapsody.

Liszt's 12 Transcendental Etudes are one of the composer's most substantial sets of piano works. He began working on the etudes at the age of 15, revising and embellishing them several times before their final publication twenty five years later in 1852. The Transcendental Etudes cover every range of emotion from the flamboyant to the sentimental to the heroic to the romantic. Hearing a performance by a Liszt expert, such as Maestro Levi, would be a memorable event for all lovers of piano music.
