Liszt: Piano Works – Martin Berkofsky

Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886) is often thought of as a great virtuoso, enchanter of the masses, a writer of dazzling music, rich in special effects designed to astound the public and bring him easy success. In reality, many of his works reflect other aspects of his many-sided personality. Liszt dedicated much of his existence to deep spiritual research, as testified by his numerous writings.

The American pianist Martin Berkofsky feels particularly at ease with the poetic world of Liszt. For him, playing Liszt is almost an experience of mystic contemplation. Martin Berkofsky’s intense study and thought about the piano music of Liszt has resulted in this dazzling recording.

Riccardo Risaliti - Música - September 2011


               Performance ****½          Sound ****½

"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."

Koldys - American Record Guide - November/December 2011

"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."

"...An album of class, designed with heart and soul."
