Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...Bolet's...[account] of the Liszt Sonata...[is] essential to any serious Liszt collection... Of the remaining items, the Valse impromptu is one of the sorts of piece that suits Bolet perfectly as it does few other contemporary pianists. And one cannot imagine even Brendel making, say, the Galop as convincing as Bolet does here. Another attraction of this issue is the suave perfection of his Liebestraume." -- Gramophone [4/1985] "...Bolet's...[account] of the Liszt Sonata...[is] essential to any serious Liszt collection...
