Siegfried Idyll

 David Deveau

 

Pianist David Deveau explores the interconnectedness of the lives and careers of three musical titans – Wagner, Liszt, and Brahms – juxtaposing Wagner and Liszt’s “music of the future” with the more traditional, established musical forms of Brahms.

 

 

 

“Deveau gives a sensitive account of a fascinating solo piano transcription of Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll.  It’s a revelation to hear this sublime, intimate work played on the piano. The harmonic and contrapuntal intricacies come through with beautiful transparency.”

New York Times

  “Deveau's sympathy for all three composers is strong, and he makes this recital feel genuinely Romantic and passionate without indulging in the excesses of rubato and inaccurate dynamics typical of the style.”
