LISZT: PIANO CONCERTOS
(Blu-ray Disc Version)

For the very first time Daniel Barenboim tackled Franz Liszt's two highly virtuosic piano concertos in a single concert.

Read more pianist. He influenced revolutionary contemporaries such as Robert Schumann and Richard Wagner. Two examples of the latter's magnificent orchestral work round off this concert programme celebrating Liszt’s bicentenary.
