New release – Imogen Cooper, Liszt & Wagner

Imogen Cooper’s fifth disc with Chandos Records, entitled Liszt & Wagner, has been released today and is available for purchase here.

The disc features a programme of original compositions and transcriptions, ranging from movements of Années de Pèlerinage: Italie to Liszt’s La lugubre gondola I and Wagner’s Elegie. It also includes Zoltán Kocsis’ transcription of the prelude to Tristan und Isolde.

In this month’s BBC Music Magazine Imogen discusses with Jessica Duchen her career thus far, plus how she came to recording this repertoire at this time.
