Quotes about SonataEdit
- The Sonata in B minor is not a favourite with the writer of this book, even if it is admitted to be a proud passage of Romanticism. In the hands of Busoni, or even of Horowitz, it sounds magnificent; but, in the opinion of the writer, always empty; and, unless it is played by such pianists as these, the awkwardness of the pauses and the jerky staccato sentiment render the Sonata painful and irritating to the nerves.
- Sacheverell Sitwell, Liszt [London, 1970], p. 192.
