I've just ordered this CD for the third time. The previous two copies eventually suffered the fate that befalls all CDs left lying around in the car. This time I'll back it up!
Mischa Dichter gets mixed reviews for his Liszt, but on this CD it's all superb. Beautiful, crisp finger work, high drama - but never OTT, a lovely mixed selection of pieces. OK - I could quibble and say I'd swap a couple of Hungarian Rhapsodies for the Dante Sonata - but overall this double CD's a must.
