BRINGING LISZT’S SARDANAPALE TO LIFE
Fri 21 October 2016, 19:30 – 21:30 BST
Franz Liszt spent four years composing an Italianate opera, Sardanapale. He abandoned it, partly under Wagner’s influence, and the music has lain dormant ever since. In this lecture-recital, David Trippett brings it to life at the piano, contextualising Liszt’s project and discussing the challenges of producing a modern edition.
