Whoever recommended Valentina Lisitsa’s Don Juan over Hamelin’s ought to be horse-whipped. Of all of the recordings of that piece I have heard, Hamelin’s is second only to Earl Wild’s. Lisitsa’s, on the other hand, has to be the WORST, even worse than Lang Lang’s. Pyrotechnics be damned, she was SO fast and SO careless that it sounded more like a Warner Brother’s cartoon than Liszt. One man once said “she’s a tall, attractive blonde and that’s all she sells,” but frankly all I see in her is a spoiled 4-year-old playing with fire.
