'This CD was a revelation—this is great music played with impeccable artistry and flawlessly recorded, one of the best solo piano records I've heard in the past ten years' (CDReview)

'This pianist seems absolutely in key with Liszt's own musicianship' (Musical Opinion)
The little Weihnachtslied is included as a postscript: Liszt made two different settings of the words of this carol, and one of those he produced in three different choral versions as well as the piano version recorded here.

Das kleine Weihnachtslied ist als eine Art Postskriptum angehängt: Liszt hat vom Text dieses Liedes zwei unterschiedliche Vertonungen erstellt, und eine davon liegt sowohl in drei verschiedenen Chorversionen als auch in der hier aufgenommenen Klavierfassung vor.
