Wagner and Liszt stretched the boundaries of composition, demanding virtuosic skill from performers of their music. While Wagner composed very little for piano, Liszt's transcriptions became the principle way audiences heard Wagner's music outside opera houses for many years. Lauded Canadian pianist Louis Lortie explores the deep musical connection between these two bold contemporaries.
Pianist Louis Lortie will sign copies of his recordings in the first floor Rotunda following his recital on Sunday January 20.
