Liszt's Song transcription : Schwanengesang

Heard Liszt's Song transcription for solo piano Schwanengesang, D.957 (Schubert, Franz) on Musiq3, Belgium's Francophone classic channel, but didn't catch the name of the pianist as it was the middle of the night and information on such broadcasts is not detailed at the website. The player's extreme delicacy interpreting what is likely Schubert's most beautiful song bowled me over to such an extent that it has become hard to listen to the vocal version. Suggestions for piano solos would be gratefully received.

RE: Liszt's Song transcription : Schwanengesang

There are quite a few songs from this Lieder cycle of Schubert transcribed by Liszt in various recitals from some of the most eminent (and not so) pianists. For the complete cycle (transribed by Liszt), there is the complete recording project of Hyperion, where Leslie Howard recorded the 14 Songs. Separately, they exist in the Vol. 32 (3CDs) of this project (The Transcriptions -2). On a single disc, there is a CD from the marginal label Fleur de Son with the not that known Joel Schoenhals.
