Franz Liszt (October 22, 1811 – July 31, 1886) was a 19th-century Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, teacher and Franciscan tertiary. The operas of Verdi supplied Liszt with a good many ideas for operatic fantasies, and the Rigoletto Paraphrase is amongst Liszt’s finest. By calling the piece a paraphrases, Liszt intends to convey the idea of taking a specific section of an opera, presenting it in highly pianistic terms whilst maintaining the general lines of the original.
This piece is great for showcasing art or furniture, background music at a classy restaurant, or any Italian, Hungarian, or European-themed projects.
