About

Sigismond Thalberg was a Wunderkind and one of the most accomplished virtuoso pianists of the 19th century, who impressed many including Mendelssohn, Chopin and Clara Schumann. He was also a composer focused on fantasies on operatic themes which was a genre in its own right, aiming to delight audiences with the familiarity of known melodies, the ingenuity of the transcriptions and their spectacular virtuosity. The collection also features the early Piano Concerto in F minor, op.5, that similarly uses embellished operatic melodies.
