  • Description

    With this issue – No 42 in Leslie Howard's marathon traversal of Liszt's solo piano music – we join Liszt on his fourth 2-CD trip to the opera house to hear music familiar and unfamiliar by Mozart, Meyerbeer, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Auber, Raff and Wagner. Over half of the music (93 minutes of the total 152) has never been recorded before. All of the music on this album is also available as part of the specially priced box set Liszt: Complete Piano Music: 'Almost any way you choose to look at it, this is a staggering achievement â€¦ the grand scope of this project gives us the chance, as listeners, to experience the almost incomprehensible breadth and depth of Liszt's imagination' (International Record Review).
