Franz Liszt: Mephisto Waltz

Ep. 6

Liszt's devilish Mephisto Waltz challenges the piano player, and enthralls the listener — not only with its virtuosity, but with its sensuous expressiveness. I recorded this at the Banff Centre’s Ralston Recital Hall. The image of Franz Liszt is from 1858, around the time he was composing this effervescent and beguiling piano music.
