'I constantly admired his near orchestral range of sonority—his strength in grandiloquence and his hypnotic sustaining power in intimacy. Everything is played with total conviction' (Gramophone)

'A most enjoyable collection' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Muy interesantes, indispensables para lisztianos' (Ritmo, Spain)
The Galop russe: The music of Konstantin Bulhakov (1812– 1862) is hardly likely to reappear in the concert hall, but this gallop is a veritable hit which Liszt obviously enjoyed transcribing, since he issued two versions of it. The second has a new introduction and coda which seem to have some subliminal connection with Beethoven’s Turkish March from The Ruins of Athens.

Le Galop russe: La musique de Konstantin Bulhakov (1812–1862) n’a de nos jours plus l’occasion de se faire entendre dans les salles de concert, mais ce galop est un véritable «tube», que Liszt dut prendre plaisir à transcrire puisqu’il en fit publier deux versions. La seconde comporte une nouvelle introduction et une coda modifiée qui semblent avoir quelque rapport subliminal avec la Marche turque des Ruines d’Athènes de Beethoven.

Der Galop russe: Die Musik von Konstantin Bulhakov (1812–1862) wird wohl kaum je wieder in der Konzerthalle auftauchen, aber dieser Galopp ist ein echter Erfolg, dessen Transkription Liszt offensichtlich genoß, da er zwei Versionen davon herausgegeben hat. Die zweite hat eine neue Einleitung und Koda, die anscheinend einige unterschwellige Verbindungen mit Beethovens Türkischem Marsch aus den Ruinen von Athen aufweisen.
