Liszts diabolische pianogeweld


Franz Liszt’s virtuosic skill at the piano seemed to so entrance listeners that both critics and public attributed satanic powers to him. With the famed Mephisto Waltz no 1, the Gretchen piano transcription and the devilishly difficult Sonata in B minor, pianist Jan Michiels illustrates Liszt’s fascination with Faust: the legendary scholar who makes a pact with the devil.
