Várjon makes rigorous sense of the work’s [Liszt’s Sonata in B minor] episodic structure, showing powerful ease in the fugue but enjoying the rhapsodic nature of the rest. The Liszt is preceded by two later works influenced by it: Berg’s one-movement Sonata Op 1 and Janácek’s In the Mists. Várjon is always perceptive as a chamber musician. It’s a treat to hear him alone.
