REVIEW: Jan Lisiecki and Annex Quartet

“The pianist was joined by the Annex Quartet, with Roberto Occhipinti, double bass, in a collegial presentation of Franz Liszt’s transcription of the work. There was beautiful balance, a great sense of proportion in the relationship between the soloist and a small ensemble, neither side “outshouting” the other.”     -The Beat Magazine
