Worth it for Earl Wild alone
These Earl Wild recordings of Liszt are in a class by themselves. This was the first commercial recording of "Robert le Diable" and the Mephisto is one of the best of all time. The Maestro was in top form and in his element. A must-hear.
Some of the best...
These recordings are a stellar example of a wonder pianist playing some of the most extraordinary music ever written for the piano. I being a pianist myself, cannot get the sound of the piano as full or intense. Bravo to Wild and Sherman! A must have.
Earl Wild's performance of the Mephisto Waltz
This is standard to which all others pianists aspire. Easily the best performance of the Liszt Mephisto Waltz around.
