An absolutely superb recording of Liszt's piano transcriptions of BWV 542-548. My record of the year for 1997!

Ehud Shiloni said:

I want to add that this is a perfect recording for people like myself who may have difficulties in "absorbing" the sound of the Organ, but who relate more readily to the Piano. This is a fantastic CD, in which the great beauty of these pieces come to full life for the ears of the Piano listener - some of the passages are so deep and sweet that they almost bring about the tears.
