Continuing the recent Ivory Classics releases of live - In Concert Earl Wild performances, we now present this new disc consisting of all solo piano pieces of Franz Liszt. All pieces are taken from material performed in recitals from London - 1973, Chicago - 1979 and Tokyo - 1983. Earl Wild, the legendary 87-year-old Grammy award winning dean of pianists plays the music of Franz Liszt like no one else. Super virtuosity and romantic elegance make this truly a disc to own and treasure.

Review

For once the description, 'the last of the great Romantic pianists' is surely accurate. -- Gramophone, October 2003

This is the disc to own if your looking for an introduction to Earl Wild and Liszt. -- 
Fanfare, Sept./Oct. 2003

Wild is a pianist of superhuman bravura and achievement. Difficult to imagine a performance more scintillating. -- 
Gramophone, October 2003
