  • Description

    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 Tannhauser Overture transcription – one of the most monumental of all piano works.
