Notes & Reviews:

This SACD remastering from Praga's Reminiscences series features pianist Sviatoslav Richter playing solo works by Franz Liszt. Richter's concert programs often included major works by Liszt, and his interpretations of these works often rivaled those of Horowitz, Arrau and Gilels. On this release, Richter's powerful and important Liszt legacy is revealed in the best possible sound quality available.
