In his debut solo-CD, released on the TwoPianists label’s debut imprint, Ben synchronizes his great love for Franz Liszt with the bicentenary celebrations of the composer’s birth.
A beautiful variety of Liszt works, from the gorgeous Les jeux d’eaux à la Villa d’Este to the monumental B minor Sonata, coupled with his ‘dazzling virtuosity’ and ‘magical music-making’ ensure the stamp of a unique artist on the rise.
