Steve Arloff
MusicWeb International, June 2003

"The whole experience of listening to such a work for a solo piano played by this consummate artist is nothing short of revelatory... whilst Konstantin Scherbakov sounded to me as if he was playing his own music. His rendition was so natural the music seemed to flow from his very being !V it was quite uncanny. It was a superb performance that made me want to rush out to find other works he has played... To sum up: transcriptions like these are true vehicles for virtuosity and demand virtuosos to perform them...Konstantin Scherbakov, by contrast, plays with a white-hot intensity that makes for thrilling listening and the result is that Liszt's work on transcribing these symphonies is allowed to stand on its own without any comparison with the original works being made, even unwittingly. If like me you have never heard these transcriptions before you are in for a treat. The whole exercise has made me eager to explore the rest of this series."
