Liszt: The complete music for solo piano, Vol. 50 - Liszt at the Opera V

Leslie Howard joins Liszt on what will be their penultimate trip to the opera. Some of Liszt's most virtuosic transcriptions from his years of fame as the world's greatest pianist (he was to retire from the professional stage in 1848) are here, including the rarely recorded transcription of the 'William Tell' Overture—a stunning warhorse with which Liszt used to end his concerts throughout the 1840s.

‘He plays here not only with his usual technical facility and understanding of the Lisztian idiom, but also with verve, wit, and an enjoyment that he conveys to the listener’ (American Record Guide)
