Liszt: The Complete Paganini Études

And still they come! Liszt Volume 48 is fundamentally about the Paganini Studies, and in particular features the impossibly difficult 1838 first versions of what became the Grandes Études de Paganini. Paganini's violin virtuosity was the primary catalyst for Liszt's quest to explore the limits of pianistic virtuosity, and these works, along with the 12 Transcendental Studies, are thus his definitive statements on piano technique.

“[Howard] can play anything that Liszt wrote, it seems, and be as intelligent and sensitive” --Classic CD
