Story behind the song
This is Liszt's well-known Concert Paraphrase of the quartet from the end of the last act of Verdi's opera Rigoletto. This is of course a hugely difficult piece, encompassing a wide variety of pianistic devices. Liszt had written this piece along with a number of other transcriptions from Verdi's operas over a period of some thirty-five years. This particular paraphrase was composed in 1859, some eight years after the first performance of the opera.
