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.

Review by Michael Walsh, Entertainment Weekly

These are big performances and it is probably not going too far to use the phrase 'the grand manner' of Zoltan Kocsis's approach to the First Concerto of Liszt. And why not, when the grand manner is well carried off, with a soloist who has a big technique and a sense of theatre and who at the same time can relax into quieter melody playing? Yet Liszt has an aristocratic face too, alongside dazzling showmanship, and I have some reservations about this performance: it is full of sudden contrasts of tone and tempo that sound too capricious to be convincing in a big concerto structure, and I am thinking too of the orchestra under Ivan Fischer which at times (for example, in the Allegro maestoso opening section) seems to burst forth in a way that is larger than life and—to be candid—rather vulgar too. The recording style is to match, being more than a little garish though admirably clear (the triangle sounds as if it has its own microphone within beating distance) and with a hard edge to the piano tone in forte and above. The A major Second Concerto is a more consciously poetic work throughout, for all its brilliance, and here too I cannot feel that the performers have the measure of the music interpretatively, while the wind of the Budapest Festival Orchestra is in less than world class, as is the solo cellist in the D flat major section beginning at 0'58'' in track 7.

The Dohnanyi Variations on a Nursery Song are lighter and more straightforward than either of the Liszt concertos, and some of their humour and style comes across. But these artists disappoint compared with the composer himself and the RPO under Boult on EMI (see below), who are able to make every musical point without exaggeration and therefore more effectively: compare the two performances, for example, in the waltz that is Variation No. 7 and the march that follows, the modern one sounding heavy and ordinary compared with the one from the 1950s. As for the Liszt concertos, for aristocratic poise and sheer brilliance go to Richter's unsurpassed account (Philips) and for youthful bravado coupled with real imagination to Zimerman's fine recording (DG). Francois-Rene Duchable (Erato/WEA) has a big technique and he is worth hearing too but he does not have Zimerman's tonal subtlety in the lyrical passages, or in the virtuoso ones either, for that matter.'
