Franz Liszt

Audio will be available later today.

The Piano Concerto No. 1 by Franz Liszt was the fruit of more than a decade in Weimar, where he lived with the love of his life, had his own orchestra, and had visitors like Brahms, Wagner and Berlioz to stimulate him. Zoltan Kocsis is the soloist and conductor in this performance from Moravia. He leads the Hungarian National Philharmonic.
