      Liszt: Concert Paraphrase on Verdi’s Rigoletto (8:37)

      Rinaldo Zhok, piano

      Italian pianist Rinaldo Zhok’s first recording for Odradek features Liszt’s complete Verdi operatic transcriptions and paraphrases, which he brings together for the first time on CD in their entirety. Zhok says, “I have always loved the simplicity and effectiveness of Verdi’s music, sophisticated yet popular, with its patriotic ideals and its innovative conception of the theater. I decided to concentrate on transcriptions and paraphrases of works that are otherwise not accessible to pianists.”
