"It is a rarity that you find recordings now days that exceed your expectations. This is not just another Liszt recording. Kuleshov is bold in his choices; he makes decisions in the music that I think other pianists are afraid to make. These performances are unique, dramatic and explore the highest level of pianism. Do you remember the first time you heard Horowitz play the Mephisto Waltz? I do; and when I heard Kuleshov's performance, it reminded me that once in a great while, a pianist comes along and reminds us that the possiblities of this instrument are only restricted by the players imagination. Kuleshov takes on Liszt with the strength of a Gladiator and the heart of poet. There are elements in several of the Paganini etudes that you've never heard before and attention to details that truly make this CD a must have for your collection."
