Notes & Reviews:

"...the disc would be a required purchase just for Hamelin's own three-minute cadenza - a supersaturated solution of chutzpah that, by way of Alkan, Godowsky, and the Ritual Fire Dance, cauterizes the Second Rhapsody. Quite simply, no other pianist can play such demanding music with such unfaltering control...Add to this Hemelin's celebrated control of vertical balances and of rhythm...and you have the deftest Liszt recital in memory...Don't hesitate." -Rabinowitz, Fanfare

'There are few living pianists who can match him in dexterity, power and daring. For heart-thumping virtuosity Hamelin is in a class of his own' (Classic CD)

'The virtuosity with which all this is despatched is exceptional' (BBC Record Review)

'Peu parmi les plus grands seraient capable d'être aussi rigoristes tout en étant aussi virtuoses' (Répertoire, France)

'These are musically and technically dazzling readings of some of the most demanding and poetic music ever written for the piano. They make me wonder if Liszt himself ever played them better! You rarely hear music-making of this calibre' (Hi Fi News)
