Notes & Reviews:

To transcribe is to establish a connection with the past and the present, on a path of research that is profound and complex: a "conscious invention". The piano is the ideal means for the reinterpretation of music. Franz Liszt was a master in this art. For the Hungarian composer, piano writing and orchestral writing were fields of the same research, which is an intellectual research.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
In both Les Préludes and Orpheus we again encounter the sensitivity to textural and agogic nuance, the sense of inevitability and aptness with regard to tempo and momentum, and originality of conception that pervade the other pieces. Sciortino's gifts, both as a musician and as a pianist, seem to exist in perfect symbiosis. This recording whets the appetite to hear more of his Liszt playing and to hear him perform his own music. Warmly recommended.
