Liszt and Wagner were the driving inspiration forso much that was new in nineteenth-century music. Wagner’s endlessly unresolved harmonies in Tristan and Isolde influenced composers for decades. Liszt’s two piano concertos compressed the traditional form into a single ever-changing sequence, transformed by breathtaking virtuosity and romantic eloquence. The groundbreaking orchestration of both composers will sound at its most revelatory on instruments of the time.
