"Berkofsky is a master of Liszt’s dazzling techniques, but he finds profound meanings in the music that comes to the surface of his playing and help unify the whole collection. The super audio recording is spacious and the piano’s wide range of dynamics and timbres is faithfully captured in the DSD reproduction."
Blair Sanderson - AllMusic.com - October 2011
"Liszt will always be remembered for his spectacular virtuoso display pieces, but he often wrote in a more spiritual, contemplative vein. These seem to be the works that interest Martin Berkofsky ... The climaxes ... are magnified by impressive bass notes of Berkofsky’s Borgato piano, captured in first-rate multichannel sound."

"The 67-year-old pianist also happens to be a colossal Liszt player, whose colorful sonority and formidable dynamic range are made for Arts Music’s full-bodied surround-sound engineering.
If you buy this disc, you’ll be supporting a good cause: all of the proceeds from this recording will benefit Assistance in Health Care, an organization founded by Berkofsky, in its mission to give financial aid to cancer patients and their families who face unexpected difficulties which arise with extended medical care."
