Connoisseurs of great piano playing will love this classic reissue of the 1988 release, which has been long out of print. Brought back by popular demand, this recording has been remastered from the original analog tapes in HDCD.

A reclusive cult figure who records even less often than he plays in public, Nojima is Japan's most celebrated concert pianist and a Cliburn Competition Silver Medal winner.

A contemporary pianist that evokes the wonders of the golden age of pianists typified by Horowitz, Godowsky, Lhevinne, and the other giants of that period.

When first released in 1988, Minoru Nojima Plays Liszt became a reference work, named Best Recording of the Month by Stereo Review which described it as "a stunning demonstration of technique put at the service of profoundly musical ends."

"...the pianist hurdles leaped with incredible fleetness and lightness, punctuated by volcanic outbursts of power and majesty. It was the sort of impossible thing rendered possible only by genius. Repeat: genius." - Albert Goldberg, Los Angeles Times
