Notes & Reviews:

"Tempos are fast and controlled. Fingerwork is impeccable. Rhythm is flexible. And the playing has color and imagination. Other good pianists have had a go at this kind of Godowsky material...but Grante has more flow and elegance...As for the transcriptions themselves, Godowsky took the Schubert-Liszt songs one step further. They are just as ingenious, often with more polyphony than Liszt brought to the music...the big thing here is Grante's remarkable playing...." -Schonberg, ARG
