‘I waited a long time before listening to interpretations of the Sonata in B minor by my great predecessors, the masters of the art all so different. For I very quickly made the Sonata my story, so caught up was I in the event I was living through. This sonata can be all things to all people, according to the inspiration, the character, the mood of the performer; it can follow the instant, the fleeting sentiment, or be straight-backed and noble! Every interpretation is different, yet they all remain the Liszt Sonata.’
From the B minor Sonata to the Wagner transcriptions, the Romanticism of Franz Liszt finds an outstanding interpreter in Roger Muraro. Accustomed to conceiving chords as colours, the pianist transports us from shadows to light with highly nuanced playing, dazzling energy and prodigious virtuosity.
A performance deeply moving in its simplicity, transcended by a recording of demonstration Quality for his first release on La Dolce Volta.

Roger Muraro – piano
Roger Muraro was born in Lyon, France in 1959, to parents who came from the Venetia region of Northeast Italy. He grew up in a village in the Lyons region. Chance had it that, because there was no place for Roger in the local football club, his parents enrolled him in the local band, where he learned the saxophone. He entered the Conservatoire de Lyon at the age of 11, initially studying the saxophone. He began to teach himself the piano, and when this came to the attention of his saxophone professor, the latter enrolled him in the piano classes of Suzy Bossard. At 17 Muraro attempted the entry competition for the Paris Conservatoire. Although unsuccessful, he caught the attention of Yvonne Loriod, wife and privileged interpreter of the composer Olivier Messiaen. He joined her class in 1978. He obtained first prizes in chamber music in 1980 and in piano in 1981, and was a saxophone teacher at the music school of Mâcon in the early ’80s. Muraro also studied with Éliane Richepin, who helped him prepare for the Tchaikovsky Competition, where he took fourth prize in 1986. He was awarded Victoire de la Musique in the category of instrumental soloist.
