* Liszt: Sardanapalo; Mazeppa

Double premiere – first recording and first performance: Franz Liszt
never finished his mature opera Sardanapalo. Now 170 years old, the
first act refracts the world of mid 19th-century opera through the
prism of Liszt’s unmistakable voice. Kirill Karabits directs Liszt’s own
orchestra in Weimar, where the music was composed, in a programme
of burning, Byronic romanticism.
