In his bicentenary, we celebrate Liszt’s remarkable contribution to the song repertoire, which is often overlooked when cast alongside his epic reputation as a pianist and composer for that instrument. The songs show a different side to the Hungarian Firebrand and include many masterpieces from a composer who was fully engaged with the texts he chose. Julius Drake needs no introduction as one of the world's leading accompanists. He is joined by Hugarian mezzo-soprano Dorottya Lang, who won third-prize in this year's Wigmore Song Competition.
