Notes & Reviews:

By the 1850s, Sigismond Thalberg had built up a major international career as a wizard of the piano, rivalled only by Liszt. For exceptional pianists such as Thalberg and Liszt, transcriptions were a useful vehicle for demonstrating their technical prowess in a form with which audiences were familiar. Bellini's operas made ideal material for these compositions.
