Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Christopher O'Riley's virtuosity, showmanship and iconoclast status make him the Franz Liszt of our time. In O'Riley's Liszt, Chris delves into the transcriptions of that master interpreter, adding his own touches and insight to the music of Mozart, Wagner, Berlioz, Schubert and Schumann. This multi-layered audio and visual experience is available as a 2-CD set and HD audio/video Blu-ray, as well as on iTunes and other digital sites, in both standard and high definition versions, and both stereo and HD 4-channel surround sound. Each music track has a corresponding music video. The Blu-ray also includes an artist commentary audio layer in which O'Riley brings his From-The-Top-honed speaking voice and extensive musical and historical knowledge to enliven and enlighten the listening experience.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
O'Riley's enjoyment is clear. It is nonetheless an admirable performance. Symphonie Fantastique is a good performance. His interpretation is admirable.
