Notes & Reviews:

"Most of Arcadi Volodos' first all-Liszt outing for Sony concerns itself with the composer's introspective, poetic, and mystical persona... I'm won over by the pianist's uncommonly extroverted and sparkling approach to Bagatelle sans tonalite. In contrast to the intimately shaded performance from Vladimir Horowitz's last recording, Volodos conceives the "Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen" Prelude on a larger dynamic and dramatic scale that makes me curious how he'd play Liszt's imposing variation set based on the same Bach theme. In all, this is an unconventional, carefully thought out, and frequently persuasive Liszt program. The concert hall realism of Sony's sonics come closer than previous releases to capturing what Volodos sounds like from a choice seat in a choice venue." -Classics Today
