Liszt's music very often has external inspiration. It attempts, that is to say, to translate and communicate emotions that have been aroused in the artist by nature, poetry or painting. The pieces recorded here are not just a combination of well-organized notes. They offer something that goes further, something not visible in the score to the naked eye, something that impresses the listener as a true "vision." It is from this that Liszt's music derives it's strongly evocative power, it's capacity to recreate in sound natural, human and spiritual realities. Jacopo Mai was born in Grosseto in September 1996.
