David Hurwitz, June 2015

As the centerpiece of the recital Cohen blazes a singularly confident trail through the twenty-minute long second version of the Grande fantaisie dramatique on Meyerbeer’s Les Huguenots, a masterpiece of its kind. Liszt programs don’t get more intelligently planned than this, nor will you find one better played. Happily, the engineering matches the quality of the interpretations. Essential Liszt. © 2015 Read complete review

, January 1997

"It's a phenomenal disc."

BBC Music Magazine

"Cohen is a rare phenomenon, a towering virtuoso with a gift of nuance"


"...this is a momentus Liszt recital."


"Arnaldo Cohen is a poetically and imaginatively intrepid as he is technically coruscating, and all these performances offer refinement and ferocity in equal proportion...they have been excellently recorded."

Classic CD

"This disc shows Arnaldo Cohen to be both a virtuoso capable of meeting the appalling demands Liszt rejoiced in making in his earlier works, and also a sensitive performer who can deliver the painful intimacies of some of the last works."
