Day 2

Elsa’s Dream by Wagner trans. Liszt

Lohengrin was the second opera that I saw performed by the Metropolitan Opera, and I was hooked. The first opera was an open rehearsal of La Bohème while in high school, but that didn’t leave the same impression.

I only recently learned that Franz Liszt transcribed several scenes from his son-in-law Richard’s opera for piano solo. I played this publicly for the first time at a wedding in September, and share it online for the first time today.
