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.

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.
