Notes & Reviews:

Franz Liszt epitomizes the nineteenth-century virtuoso-composer of Romantic ideals and aspirations. He redefined artistic and technical possibilities of the modern piano as an instrument and as a centerpiece of the concert stage. This 2-CD collection showcases all-time favorites, including 'Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2' and 'Liebestraume,' as well as symphonic poems such as 'Les Preludes' and the 'Faust Symphony.'
