Notes & Reviews:

For his new CD, Tomas Dratva returned to the source in multiple senses of the phrase. In the St. Petersburg Siloti Archive, he studied the autograph of Liszt's Annes de Pelerinage, which shows distinct departures from later printed editions. To continue his search for authenticity, he decided to record the work on the Wagner Steinway in Haus Wahnfried, an instrument that Liszt himself frequently played.

Bay Area Reporter
The CD is a refutation of every cliche about the empty bombast of Liszt's writing; in his captivating notes... Dratva's playing of this mighty music... it captures the clarity of voices for which Liszt was as famous as he was for his powerhouse virtuosity.
