Notes & Reviews:

"playing of a formidable power and assurance. Her fugue is more pedestrian than concentrated but the pages before the valedictory coda, with its glassy sighs and veiled threats, take off like the proverbial rocket. She also storms the central Andante sostenuto's climax with a vengeance, turning on the fiercest voltage." - Gramophone

American Record Guide
excellent and quite enjoyable performances of the sonata along with good Liszt filler pieces. Biret's Paganini Etudes constitute another major Liszt work...
