Reviews:

"...much to marvel at in these lucid and sensitive compositions which drew their inspiration from his travels. This disc maintains the perfection we have come to expect from Stephanie McCallum's recordings."- Anthony CLARKE. The Bulletin. 21 January, 2004.

"...The centrepiece is the imposing After Reading Dante. Here McCallum plays with sensitivity and impressive velocity..."-Martin BALL The Weekend Australian. 17-18 January, 2004.

“...the soloist expertly harnesses the full power and range of Liszt’s keyboard with ardour and commitment. In the final work of the recital McCallum brings a marvellous sense of rhythm and phrasing together with brilliant and spirited playing in the Tarantella from Venezia e Napoli. ...A glowing Liszt recital expertly recorded. I will return to this release very soon.” Michael Cookson Musicweb International review May 2004
