Product Description

This 3 CD set contains all of the major original organ works of Liszt, together with a selection of virtuoso arrangements and transcriptions of Liszt’s orchestral and piano works by Camille Saint-Saëns, Max Reger, Edwin Lemare, Nicolas Kynaston, and Peter King.

"He is a virtuoso of world class... I'm astonished at his bravura; nothing fazes him... and he plays with such élan, and with such passion, such commitment..."
-CD Review (BBC Radio 3)

"It is realistically captured in magnificent sound by Gary Cole whose Wolverhampton -based Regent label is steadily building up an impressive choral and organ catalogue....I doubt if there will be an organ contirbution to the Liszt bicentennial which can better this."
-Gramophone July 2011
