Notes & Reviews:

Misha Dacic's concerts at the Miami Piano Festival in recent years made a sensational impact, as is evidenced on YouTube. They show that appearances do not deceive: he is as much of a wizard as he appears. A true artist, with limitless technique, he has the ability to conjure up unheard-of tonal effects from the piano, evoking the most amazing timbres and sonorities. Dacic's affinity with Liszt shows in the selection of music on this new recording, which is centered around three masterpieces: the epic B-A-C-H Variations, the seldom heard Grosses Konzertsolo and the Dante Sonata, in which Dacic incorporates elements from all three versions Liszt made (prepare for some surprises). As a suitable conclusion to this tribute, Dacic ends with the late masterpiece La Lugubre Gondola.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Hungarian Rhapsody 9 sparkles, proving that Dacic can be playful and dramatic, and he excels where the utmost delicacy is needed. YouTube videos attest to his comfort and fearlessness with these works on stage. Dacic is truly a pianist to watch, and this triumph bodes well for later recordings and performances.
