    Default Liszt Fantasia on Ruins of Athens

    On 4th March 1874, Franz Liszt delivered a stirring performance of his `Fantasia on Themes from Ruins of Athens' by Beethoven. S.122. This was a charity concert in Budapest and there were more than two thousand people present. The result was a pandemonium.The technical master of Liszt on the pianoforte astonished all who heard it.
    This is a spectacular performance by Michel Beroff with Gewandhausorchester Leipzig conducted by Kurt Masur.
