Fanfare, March 2012

its manifold strengths are more than praiseworthy. I think most viewers will find Liszt: The Pilgrimage Years both entertaining and informative. It is a pleasure to encounter a portrayal of this long, complicated, and prolific life handled with sensitivity and intelligence. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review on Fanfare

MusicWeb International, December 2011

The narration gives a good overview of Liszt’s highly eventful life, from his piano debut in Paris at the tender age of 12 through the public wave of adulation that Heine dubbed “Lisztomania”, past a succession of passionate love affairs, and on to the final rise of his Catholicism in the taking of minor clerical orders late in life. Kissin has some priceless observations on this late triumph of faith, after Liszt’s succession of flagrant love affairs.

In sum: Enjoyable fare, especially for Liszt fans, and an entertaining commemoration of the bicentennial of Liszt’s birth. © 2011 MusicWeb International Read complete review
