Amazing performances by Alexander Ullman of the Eroica and 9th Symphonies for Beethoven 250 th Anniversary at the International Franz Liszt Competition in Utrecht. It was also Alex’s birthday what a celebration that was !
What a wonder these Liszt transcriptions are in the right hands as with the Bach Chaconne in Busoni’s hands …these are masterpieces in their own right……..listen to this and you will see what I mean.
As you can see I have heard Alex many times over the years but I have never heard him play with such authority and commitment as here.
My first impression five years ago ,that he looks and plays like a young God ,was not totally misplaced! …….https://www.facebook.com/notes/christopher-axworthy/alexander-ullman-the-supreme-stylist/10154587524467309/
