  • Description

    Two CDs of exceptional rarities. Throughout his career Liszt was an inveterate reviser of his works and much of his best-known output exists in earlier suppressed versions. These are often of great interest in themselves—containing music which was later excluded or, in the case of works commenced in the 1830s and '40s, piano-writing which was later simplified.
    Of particular note here is the genesis of what later became the Dante Sonata, one of Liszt's most important works.
