Liszt: Piano works

Listen

In the press

Pfaff's awesome fingers make light work of such technically demanding showpieces... clearly a name to watch and his dexterity must be the envy of many young pianists. This is a fine disc.
Classic FM Magazine ****

Perhaps less boxy sound would have imparted a more fluid, singing quality to the second and third Liebestraüme, third Consolation and two Wagner transcriptions, yet these precise qualities result from Pfaff's sensitive pedalling and refined legato touch in the "Gondoliera"....
