Roland Pöntinen presents some of Liszt’s most celebrated opera transcriptions including Réminiscences de Don Juan, Danza sacra e Duetto finale from Aida and Isolde’s Liebestod. These lavish and beautiful pieces are performed in the appropriate mileu – the theatre or at the opera stage and their sheer brilliance is underlined by light design and, if available, stage sets of the house.

Premiered at the Royal Opera House, Stockholm, 31 October 2011.
