Notes and Editorial Reviews

There’s something loveable about this set, about the way in which Jando’s playing captures Liszt’s virtuosity without banging, and his lyricism without heaviness. Everyone will have their own favorite versions of the concertos, and Leslie Howard offers even more works for piano and orchestra (including the Freischütz Fantasy, well-performed as it is, strikes me as cheating). Also, the conclusion of Totentanz is a touch stolid, and Jando could attack the fugal finale of Schubert’s Wanderer Fantasy with more abandon, but both the “Hungarian” and “Lelio” fantasies go swimmingly, and Malédiction has plenty of passion, again without turning vulgar. The sonics are also well-balanced, if hardly today’s best, and the orchestral Read more accompaniments very assured. A nice collection.
