Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Hooshik Hwang has some rough-and-ready moments in the concerto, but overall he and Jordania and the Russian Federalists do quite well following Liszt’s directions with brisk élan, which cannot fail to make the desired effect and for which recommendation may not be withheld... Angelok’s sound is spacious and somewhat recessed, generally well detailed, rippled with flashes of immediacy and moments of murkiness." - FANFARE "Hooshik Hwang has some rough-and-ready moments in the concerto, but overall he and Jordania and the Russian Federalists do quite well following Liszt’s directions with brisk élan, which cannot fail to make the desired effect and for which recommendation may not be withheld...
