Description: Imaginative programming centered on the Liszt-Wagner friendship and the latter’s death in Venice and giving us new orchestrations of several piano pieces by the pair. What’re two French composers doing here? Lencés gives his slender reasons in the notes but these three pieces are the most Records International-worthy by dint of their rarity so we need no reason to enjoy them! Lajos Lencés (oboe, cor anglé), Leo Lencsés (cello), Kammerakademie Budapest; Géza Gémesi.
