Notes & Reviews:

In this recital, Emanuel Ax celebrates one of the most ambivalent friendships in musical history. The great B minor Sonata of Chopin is permeated by his profound understanding of Bach, while the bulk of the Liszt arrangements reflect both his adoration of Schubert and the prodigal resourcefulness of Liszt's creative mind.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The Liszt arrangements, all melodious and easy listening, complement the Chopin nicely. The Schubert transcription, 'Das Wandern', is surefooted, and 'Der Muller und Bach' is particularly subtle. His Paganini Etude sparkles and is well controlled. Though a good quality recording that testifies to Ax's high level of polish and maturity as a young pianist, it sounds safe and comfortable.
