“A lusty, compelling rendition… Agranovich sports a touch that, in its detached form, inserts an antique, transparent texture into the emergent sound, as if indeed we were hearing the music played in tavern or Beidermeier salon. The lyric repeats and swells, aching with heartbreak, the piano easily substituting for a guitar or ennobled lute.” “The music no less conveys a dramatic, nostalgic narrative that becomes liquid in its cascades, runs, and trills. The shifts in metric pulse, the sudden impulses, agitato, require a mastery of Liszt’s pedal that Agranovich demonstrates with a finesse that might invoke comparisons with other bearers of the Liszt flame. Bolet, Arrau, and Cziffra.” (Gary Lemco, Fanfare Magazine)
