In the latest episode of Symphonic Hit, we meet a true 19th-century superstar: the popularity of Franz Liszt could be compared to that of the Beatles in the 1960s, Michael Jackson in the 1980s, or rapper Eminem in the early 2000s. Initially a great pianist, he later became an acclaimed composer. You will hear more from the narrator Goran Gora with beautiful visuals by Krišs Salmanis, while pianist Elīna Bērtiņa and the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra put it into sound.
