On Sunday 24th at 4pm, in celebration of Liszt’s 210th birthday, we have a LISZT RECITAL by Daniel Barenboim from La Scala (1h30mins).
‘’This DVD is just great. Daniel Barenboim plays the all-Liszt program with such great feeling that I got goose bumps listening to him. The repertoire, all favourites of mine and very difficult to play, starts with pieces from "Annees de pelerinage, deuxieme annee: Italie" Sonetto 47, 104 and 123 and Apres une lecture de Dante. Fantasia quasi sonata. Then, from Legendes: "St. Francois d'Assise. La predication aux oiseaux" and concludes with concert transcriptions from the operas, namely "Aida: Danza sacra e duetto finale", "Miserere du Trovatore. Paraphrase de concert" and "Rigoletto. Paraphrase de concert". The whole concert is very well filmed, showing off the Teatro alla Scala as well as the performer. Add to all this superb sound and you know this DVD is a must have. When the audience burst into applause I nearly did myself!’’ Amazon reviewer
