Jessica Duchen’s Classical Music Blog : Antonio Lysy

Reading Jessica Duchen’s Classical Music Blog today is a treat because she publishes an essay by cellist Antonio Lysy which is a tribute to his father, Alberto Lysy (1935-2009).

In her post, Duchen talks about Antonio’s recent recording on Yarlung Records:

Alberto Lysy | Antonio Lysy

Alberto and Antonio (aged 18) Lysy

Back in 2001 Alberto and Antonio recorded the Kodály Duo for violin and cello together. This recording was released for the first time just a few weeks ago. Hungarian as Kodály may be, the album is in fact called South America and features works by Piazzolla, Villa-Lobos, Coco Trivisonno and more – paying tributes to Antonio’s multifarious background and influences. The South American repertoire is irresistibly seductive and atmospheric, while the Kodály, performed with tremendous intensity, bravura and sensitivity, is more than a treat and a half. In this guest post, Antonio tells us about the coaching his father received from Yehudi Menuhin and Zoltan Kodály himself.
