Notes & Reviews:

It was billed as a battle of titans. Franz Liszt had invited the leading pianists of his time to compose variations on Bellini's "March of the Huguenots." The international keyboard stars Chopin, Thalberg, Pixis, Czerny, and Herz had agreed to compete, but they never actually performed together in Princess Beliojoso's Paris salon. Claudius Tanski has now recreated this event with his master pupils. Unlike Liszt 175 years ago, he collaborates on equal terms with this circle of brilliant young stars emulating their immortal models with sovereignty and grandeur.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The additional music includes pieces both known and unknown by the composers: a powerfully executed Liszt Funerailles played by Johann Blanchard, Czerny's delightful Variations on Schubert's Waltz in the supple hands of Kanako Yoshikane, and a gentle and restrained Thalberg Nocturne by Carlos Goicoechea. In addition we have Leon Buche as both composer and performer in Hexameron over the Clouds a decidedly more modern take on the Bellini theme.
