Jay Hershberger; Transfigured Shadows
Dr. Jay Hershberger, member of the Concordia piano faculty and internationally recognized authority on the piano music of Franz Liszt, has released his debut solo recording, "Transfigured Shadows: Select Piano Works of Franz Liszt." This music is considered some of the most difficult ever written for the instrument, yet Dr. Hershberger brings these pieces to life, including the famous "Mephisto Waltz No. 1," with brilliant ease. The president of the American Liszt Society, Thomas Mastroianni, concurs: "Exceptionally beautiful performances on the CD - Jay¹s playing is intelligent and profound. I can sense the inner connection between the sound of the recording and the depth of the soul which it reflects." This CD is a masterpiece of piano virtuosity.
"Jay Hershberger is an exceptional and thoughtful artist. An exceptionally fine and wonderful disc."
