British pianist Valerie Tryon (now residing in Canada) performs the treacherously difficult 'Ave Maria' arrangement that Franz Liszt made of the lied by Franz Schubert. As is visible in the sheet music that is shown in sync with the music, it is written on three staves simultaneously. Tryon plays the work at a singable tempo, which is nearly impossible, all the while maintaining a wonderful cantabile singing line. The recording is featured in Naxos' Volume 17 of the complete piano music of Liszt, and is a single unedited take (she made two single takes at the session - this is the first).
