Liszt's Il Penseroso

Javier Otero Neira, piano

"Il Penseroso", from Années de pèlerinage: Deuxième Année (Italie), S. 161 by Franz Liszt

This Liszt piece was directly inspired by Michelangelo’s sculpture of the same name that made such a strong impact on the composer when he saw it during his stay in Rome. The narration prior to the performance (by Arturo Arribas) explains the unexpected links between both works of art.
