Chill with Beethoven

Franz Liszt

This compilation of Beethoven's more soothing works is obviously more lifestyle branding than unified musical statement, making this an ideal beginner's guide to the astounding German composer as well as a quick-and-easy playlist for dinner parties and the like. The performances here display typical Naxos excellence: Jeno Jando's playing on the piano-based works is solid and calming, and the string work of the various soloists also captures the works 'energy while fulfilling this compilation's title and directive.
