Most of this disc is taken up with Liszt's Christmas Tree, an unusually modest suite based on Christmas carols. It also offers charming pieces by Reger, Tchaikovsky, Rebikov, and Lyapunov based on Christmas themes, and a couple of Bach transcriptions. Eteri Andjaparidze, whose first CD was a sensational Prokofiev collection, plays this music truly superb musicianship and the kind of pianistic color that has become a rarity. Her Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring is the most beautiful I've heard since Dinu Lipatti's. And wait until you hear her delightful playing of Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride! It's deliciously witty and charming.

It is on an extraordinary instrument that the french pianist Cyril Huvé performs selected works of Liszt, Schubert, Debussy and Scriabin. His disc-recital is called Opus 102, the name of the piano designed by Stephen Paulello. The former teacher and tuner released the sounding board and expanded the traditional Steinway ambitus to favor the production of a « high fidelity » sound, capable of restoring all the richness of the repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries.

What a unique, miraculous merger, that of the universes, so contrasted and so complementary, of Richard Wagner (1813-1883) and Franz Liszt (1811-1886), whose thinking and oeuvre so marked the 19th century and who still fascinate us up to the present day.

What a unique, miraculous merger, that of the universes, so contrasted and so complementary, of Richard Wagner (1813-1883) and Franz Liszt (1811-1886), whose thinking and oeuvre so marked the 19th century and who still fascinate us up to the present day. is century, which both crossed in such a singular way, constantly pushing back the limits of their chosen fields and linked by this same quest of the absolute through art: the former, upsetting the codes of opera by taking up with mythology and blending it with poetry, drama and philosophy; the latter, a pianist of extraordinary gifts, adulated by the masses and profoundly mystical.

Reflecting the life of Christ from the nativity to the Passion and Resurrection, Liszt’s oratorio Christus was premiered in 1873 and enjoyed considerable success. The movements he transcribed for piano are dynamic and virtuosic but also pastoral and meditative, including marches and passages of transfiguring beauty. The transcriptions of movements from the oratorio The Legend of St Elisabeth contains music of stirring power: plainsong, a hymn, a march and a Hungarian folk-song. This is the forty-seventh volume in Naxos's celebrated complete Liszt piano music series, and features prolific pianist Henry Kramer.

So what if Liszt spent most of his life in France and Germany and never learned to speak Hungarian? The music of the Magyars' fiery favorite son played by a hot-blooded local boy is an irresistible combination. Even the delightful Dohnanyi filler (variations on ''Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star'') doesn't really douse the flames. Put it in the CD player and let 'er rip! Just be sure to remove all flammable vestments first. (Entertainment Weekly)

This set brings together the five separate discs containing Franz Liszt’s transcriptions of Beethoven’s nine symphonies performed by the pianist Yury Martynov. Reducing these complex works for piano solo was an enormous challenge for Liszt, who nevertheless succeeded in recreating their prodigious character and their incredible power. ‘An event on a period piano, thanks to which we rediscover the colours… of the orchestra’ (Pianiste): the piano combines the whole orchestra, sometimes even with vocal soloists and chorus, bringing their voices together in a single instrument.

Alice Sara Ott's 2008 recording of Franz Liszt's 12 Transcendental Etudes may be the right prescription for jaded listeners who are sure they've heard all they need of this composer. To the extent that any pianist can make Liszt's music sound fresh, innovative, and interesting again, after years of mistreatment at the hands of sentimentalists and show-offs, Ott succeeds brilliantly on all three points.
