Bringing Liszt’s Sardanapale to Life

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.
