Fine performance but audio tech glitches

As a point of reference, my Gold Standard for this final set of Liszt Etudes (S139) is the rarely available Lazar Berman Melodyia recording. Ms. Zhao has technique to spare for these pieces and reveals note detail that others (though not Berman) fumble through. I'd really like to hear her on the 1837 set, which has yet to receive a credible recording (Leslie Howard comes closest, with Biret and Weber barely in the running).

Unfortunately, the iTunes transfer has nasty hash surprises at the end of several tracks. They can blow your ears out if you're not careful. For that reason alone, I regret not being able to put this album in my permanent rotation.

Mélodie Zhao's musical family played a role in the development of her skills, which earned her a master’s degree in soloist performance from the Geneva Conservatory at just age 16. Zhao was born in Switzerland, but educated both there and in China, where her grandfather taught her perfect pitch and her grandmother gave her keyboard lessons. Her father -- one of her most influential coaches -- was an esteemed violin teacher at China's Central Conservatory. Coming from such a family, it was no surprise...
