It's impossible to imagine Lang Lang passing up an opportunity to commemorate the bicentennial of Liszt's birth. The pianist -- showy, arrogant, prodigiously gifted -- is a perfect match for the composer. So what if his "Grand Galop chromatique" and "Rakoczy March" sound a bit over the top? Isn't that the way they were intended to be? Thankfully, there are moments of reprieve from the technically muscular showstoppers, with sensitive (borderline sappy) readings of Liszt's more impressionistic "Consolation No. 3" and "Ave Maria."
