Notes & Reviews:

Jorge Bolet is the quintessential Liszt interpreter. These concerto recordings were made in 1979 at the height of his fame an artistic maturity. Somewhat overlooked at the time, Bolet's reputation is now much more established since he went on to re-record most of the Liszt repertoire for Decca in the 1980s. Brought together with his much earlier solo recording on Everest this is a comprehensive coupling of a performer expounding the apotheosis of his art. Over the years Gramophone Magazine has beat the drum; "...a feeling that he has captured the essece of what Liszt wished to convey. With Bolet one is rather more aware of Liszt the Transcendental Virtuoso who discovered whole new areas of expression....an unistakeable authority that takes one straight to the heart of the matter." As the Penguin Guide puts it;" Not just a wizard, but a feeling musician."
