Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Jorge Bolet was renowned as one of history's great Liszt interpreters. His playing was imbued with a noble sense of design rather than pure pyrotechnics. That this super-virtuosic program also includes pieces by Leopold Godowsky should come as no surprise; Godowsky was the young Bolet's mentor. This is an exceptional concert by a sterling, yet modest virtuoso. - Jorge Bolet was one of the great 20th century pianists - A further highlight from the Schwetzingen SWR Festival concert series
