5.0 out of 5 stars Liszt at its best, 9 Oct 2013
As a student I once had a scratchy old cassette of Vladimir Horowitz playing Liszt. And a cd set of works by Jorge Bolet. And I thought there would never be another that came close to these grand old masters.

And then along comes Valentina. She manages the virtuosity with ease, so can express the real love, feeling and emotion that Liszt intended.

This CD is truly like no other Liszt. From the breathtakingly beautiful Ave Maria arrangement to the dazzling virtuosity of the Hungarian Rhapsody, this delivers everything. With exquisite sound dynamics.

Horowitz and Bolet would be proud to own this. So would Liszt himself. Thankyou Valentina.
