I have nothing but praise for James Lisney's piano playing; he combines velvet touch and wide range of colour with complete understanding of phrasing and dynamic shading. This is someone who can really give the mechanical box of wires and wood a singing soul.
The English pianist James Lisney, a guest of the Bucharest Filharmonic, offered a Schubert programme .... if we were able to rediscover Schubert`s music in all its diversity and nuances it is to the credit of the pianist, who proved to be an extraordinarily sensitive interpreter of this music. With a technique perfectly adapted to the Schubertian style and a remarkably varied sound, springing from a unique sensitivity, James Lisney succeeded in holding the attention of the audience throughout, not allowing a moments escape into other thoughts, attracting them with permanent internal movement and intense artistic feelings ... a truly original musical personality.
