For me, Jorge Bolet is the GREAT Liszt pianist. I've got almost all the 'greats' playing Liszt's piano Sonata: the best? I think Bolet by quite a long way, then Gilels ..... the rest also-rans inc Richter, Argerich, Arrau, Horowitz, Sofronitszky, Demidenko, Vlassenko - even Cortot. Why isn't Bolet more recognised? Is it because he wasn't really a professional pianist? If you don't have this, treat yourself!

I'm a newcomer to Liszt so can't really comment on the relative quality of this recording compared to others. All I can say is that it seemed pretty good to me. I am fond of Chopin and all sorts of piano concertos from Mozart to Rachmaninov, but to my shame beyond a few snippets (eg Liebestraum) on easy listening collections I didn't have anything by FL. I don't suppose I'm unique, so for the benefit of other musical middle-brows he's a bit less approachable than Chopin, but he has certainly grown on me. Give him a try - i'm sure you'll find it worthwhile.

I go quite soppy for Liszt and this recording is very fine indeed - subtle, elegant and sufficiently romantic to hit all the right buttons for closet-Romantics like me.

The CD contains some marvellous music and piano playing. Excellent value at the double-Decca price. Arrived sealed and in pristine condition - not always to be expected!

Lovely playing by one of the best interpreters of Liszt. Some outstanding playing and a very exciting mix of pieces from a tremendouscomposer

Arrived in good time and the CDs are OK but the jewel box was broken. Particularly irritating for a double CD.
The music is wonderful, beautifully played and excellent sound quality.
