Notes & Reviews:

Franz Liszt wrote relatively little chamber music in his long and illustrious career. The Duo Sonata is a tribute to Chopin, drawing on one of his famous Mazurkas as well as other Polish themes. The gracefully charming Epithalamium was Liszt’s wedding present to the great violinist Eduard Reményi, for whom the gipsy style of Die drei Zigeuner was also intended. The two lyrical Elegies commemorate the passing of members of Liszt's circle, while the demandingly virtuoso variations of the Grand Duo concertant make no concessions to either player.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
These two musicians play these works with sensitive attention to their idioms and intents. I would recommend that you consult Joseph Magil's review of a similar program (May/June 2012); and for an even more extensive collection, try Elaine Fine's coverage ( Jan/Feb 2013). This release stands up well against the rest and probably costs less. I like it.
