This album contains the opera fantasies by Liszt, presented by Piano Classics, a label of Brilliant Classics.

Presenting rarities alongside more familiar works, this disc offers a unique conspectus of Liszt’s piano music from his itinerant years as touring virtuoso. Embodying almost every imaginable pianistic possibility while drawing upon the impassioned rhetoric of Italian opera, Liszt’s paraphrases are radical conceptions of striking originality and daring innovation. Coupling the dramatic narrative of the opera house with the bravura of the concert hall, this disc is a must for all enticed by full‐blooded Romanticism and hair‐raising virtuosity.
