The Greatest Opera Pianist Ever?

Franz Liszt may have only composed one opera, but he is associated with many of the greatest operas of all time through his many opera paraphrases. During this Liszt Year the Piano will explore many of the facts of this amazing artist. Up first, Liszt at the Opera with performances that conjour up skating, the Mute of Portici by Auber and we finish with the barn storming Danse Infernale from Robert le Diable where the ghosts of naughty nuns consort with the Devil.

Amazing performances and thousands of notes, on the Piano, this Sunday afternoon at 5 on KPAC and KTXI.
