Throughout his long life Liszt frequently re-composed pieces, making new decisions that corresponded to his musical and personal evolution. This event, using the Piano Gallery’s 1840 Erard and 1920 Steinway pianos, pieces together such re-compositions and places them in both a musical and instrumental context to suggest the significance of nostalgia in Liszt’s music.
