Throughout his life, Franz Liszt burned the candle at both ends. A child prodigy who became the greatest keyboard virtuoso of his time, he was also a prolific composer, whose output ranged from hundreds of piano pieces to symphonies, tone poems, songs and oratorios. Mixing the colorful letters of Franz Liszt with some of his most ecstatic piano music, Odyssey of Love depicts his tempestuous relations with the two most important women in his life.
Acknowledged as one of Britain's finest pianists, Lucy Parham first came to public attention on winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year, since when she has performed extensively throughout the world.
An L.A. Theatre Works performance featuring Rosalind Ayres, Martin Jarvis and Lucy Parham.
Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
