When it comes to classical music, I have a real weakness for Franz Liszt, who I once read referred to as the Elvis Presley of classical music. So much of his music was used in the classic animated shorts of Warner Brothers and Hanna Barbera that it’s still well known to this day. Tops on that list is his Hungarian Rhapsodies. I’m partial to “Totentanz,” which has a hard-driving piano solo that has to be heard to be believed.
But what I’d really like to see is a pianist performing Liszt’s work. A look at Amazon doesn’t turn up much, although this DVD looks promising. So I throw it out to all of you. Perhaps there’s at least one classical fan out there who knows of a DVD somewhere that might have what I’m looking for. Anyone? Please?
