 Self-Recommending February 24, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I have four different discs of Liszt's Piano Concertos; all very nicely performed and recorded but this is possibly the best one. It's pretty hard to top Richter, Konddrashin and the LSO. What's more, you have the recording laid down by Wilma Cozart and Robert Fine--names well known to audiophiles for their excellent recordings. This 1961 recording was digitally remastered by Wilma Cozart-Fine. Anyone familiar with the names mentioned know they are in for a first-class listening experience." Report Abuse
