A great transcriptionist before the Eternal, Liszt "borrowed" from all his contemporaries, including himself. But as a borrower, it has seriously increased the borrowing of a very large number of interests of all kinds, especially virtuoso. Here, under the fingers of the Hungarian pianist Gábor Farkas (a disciple of Kocsis), winner of the Liszt Prize of Weimar in 2009 and regularly invited to the most prestigious halls of the world - Carnegie Hall, Fenice of Venice, Konzerthaus of Berlin etc. - an array of "arrangements," or rather of complete rewritings, realized from scenes of operas by Gounod, Verdi and Wagner; As well as Lieder de Schumann (monsieur and madame) and Chopin (who wrote some songs according to Polish themes, little marvels). And to top it all, the version that Liszt himself established for solo piano from his own Totentanz initially designed for piano and orchestra.
