Franz Liszt - Transcriptions from Operas [Complete Piano Music Vol. 41] (2016)
As Chen’s debut album, it got raved by the international press such as Gramophone, American Record Guide and ClassicsToday.com.
The album is a research on Liszt’s lesser known transcriptions on works by his early contemporaries. The pianist’s own favorite is the I Puritani by Vincenzo Bellini, while the critics’ pick goes to Der Freischütz by Carl Maria von Weber.
