Liszt's transcriptions of other composers' music are as highly regarded as his original piano works. The violinist Ferdinand David's Bunte Reihe are 24 Character Pieces through all the keys. Here, David's original violin & piano scoring in successions of dance movements of various European derivations, couched in brilliant or caressing style, are superbly transformed by Liszt's uncanny keyboard mastery.

Although I missed her Wigmore Hall recital last year, due to other commitments, her playing is as fine as ever, but what makes this disc so compelling is the continuous flow of melodic invention, new harmonisations and colourings perfectly chosen to suit the diversity of the 24 numbers - 25 actually, because Liszt changed his mind and set another version of Ungarisch, changing the tempo marking from Allegretto moderato to Allegro marziale with his customary zest for exploring new approaches [listen - track 20, 0:12 - 1:07].
