Evgeny Kissin: Liszt's Liebesträume

Evgeny Kissin [b Oct 1971] plays Franz Liszt's  Liebesträume No. 3. Kissin is another of those child musical prodigies that come out of Russia. "He came to international attention in March 1984 when, at the age of twelve, he performed Chopin’s Piano Concertos 1 and 2 in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Moscow State Philharmonic under Dmitri Kitaenko," his website says.

Liebesträume (German for Dreams of Love), is a set of three solo piano works (S/G541) by Franz Liszt, published in 1850. Often, the term Liebesträume refers specifically to No. 3, the most famous of the three.
