Notes & Reviews:

What a man, what a violin, what an artist! [... ] And his expression, his manner of phrasing, and finally his soul!' Franz Liszt, 1831 (about Paganini). The transcriptions and arrangements of Paganini's Útudes represent a special case and, besides a bow before the great colleague, demonstrate demands on extreme technical skills. In his Útudes, the pianist Liszt is quite evidently endeavouring to place alongside the Devil's violinist Niccol˛ Paganini a Devil's Pianist, which he completely succeeds in doing. In general, recourse is taken to the second version (1851) today, as it seems to be in keeping with Liszt's definitive desire. However, all the more interesting on this new release is a direct comparison with the earlier version (1838), which exhibits an even more dense notation and difficulties transcending technical borders.
