Franz Liszt will probably always be thought of as the greatest pianist who has ever lived, and his works for piano are undoubtedly among the most virtuosic to have been written.
On this disc Daniel Barenboim explores the vast emotional range of Liszt's piano music, from the most delicate chiaroscuro through to the most ominously dramatic climax.
This is a new release of the series of Metropolitan Munich programs.
