Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Franz Liszt transcribed for piano Beethoven's nine symphonies, Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, Paganini themes, and much else besides. Liszt also transcribed Richard Wagner's Isolde's Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde, heard here as the final track on the latest Calliope release by French pianist Christophe Vautier, the last student of the Hungarian piano virtuoso György Cziffra. In addition to Liszt's 'Dante' Sonata are three transcriptions of recent vintage by Jacques Caulin: the Preludes to Acts I & III of Richard Wagner's Parsifal and the opening prelude of Tristan und Isolde.
