Around 1840 Liszt composed a four-movement suite inspired by his travels in Italy called Venezia e Napoli.

This week we’re offering Liszt's virtuosic Tarantella from what eventually became a three-movement work published as a ‘supplément’ to the deuxième année of Années de pèlerinage. Pianist Llŷr Williams performs on a recording on the Signum Classics label.

The disc was given four stars in the January issue of BBC Music Magazine. 

Our critic Malcolm Hayes wrote: ‘Llŷr Williams is entirely on terms with the virtuoso requirements of the Tarantella from Venezia e Napoli… The intricate part-writing of Liszt’s transcription from Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, too, comes across with a stellar combination of absolute clarity and gorgeous piano sound.’
