Liszt: Fantasy on Themes from Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro" and "Don Giovanni" , S. 697

My first hearing of this Liszt work , over the top even for Liszt.

Apparently unfinished at Liszt’s death, revised and “ completed “ by Busoni, but completed and restored differently ca. 1997 by Aussie pianist Leslie Howard per Wiki :
