Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Interesting, I suppose, that there is, in these performances, ten seconds difference between the two very different works. His Schumann was recorded when he was 86 but I don’t think you’d know it. There is a real sense of energy coursing through the bloodstream of this performance, a sense of momentum and sweeping grandeur. One shouldn’t be surprised that his Liszt takes a direct approach. With performances of this work now regularly breaching 33 or 34 minutes, his 1974 recording – adroit, powerful – aims for cohesiveness, not localised drama."
