These inventive and imaginative fantasias on themes from operas by Wagner ,Gounod .Mozart and Verdi receive the right kind of bravura playing from Louis Lortie and can be highly recommended although the recorded piano tone may not be quite of the best kind

Although I can't play the piano I love the instrument. This CD shows that it is capable of playing the complicated tunes of Wagnerian opera in a totally credible way.
Of course purists will say that opera should be played by a large opera as the composer intended, however Liszt had another idea and he made sure that, prior to the day of records, smaller audiences could enjoy the melodies of the opera in the smaller confinement of their parlours.
Well done Liszt and Louis Lortie for bringing these tunes to our attention.

Fine playing- but Not seduced by the tone of the Fazzioli piano-forte.
Listz pyrotechnics appear some what dated to modern ears.
