Liszt: The complete music for solo piano, Vol. 54 - Liszt at the Opera VI

This is the sixth and final instalment of Leslie Howard's thorough survey of Liszt's opera paraphrases and transcriptions. The series now includes all the significant versions of every such work he composed. There are some real rarities, here including three complete works, never published by Liszt, which our pianist has prepared from the manuscripts. Also present is the legendary Tannhäuser Overture transcription – one of the most monumental of all piano works.

‘A bombshell selection that promises to hold the listener for hours on end. One almost imagines the fire of Liszt himself at the keyboard. Another jewel in Hyperion's legendary series’ (The Sunday Times)
