Franz Liszt: Schubert Song Transcriptions For Solo Piano Series II

Books | Piano

Publisher: Dover Publications
Artist: Franz Liszt
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Of the many transcriptions Franz Liszt made of the works of other composers, those he made of the songs of Franz Schubert are among his most inspired. This volume contains the legendary pianist's twelve transcriptions from Schubert's great song cycle 'Winterreise', along with the four songs of 'Geistliche Leider', and the beloved single songs 'La Rose', 'Lob Der Thranen' and 'Die Forelle'. These rare transcriptions offer unique blending of Classical inspiration with Romantic virtuosity. Here, Liszt retained the intense lyricism and emotional impact of Schubert's songs as he transformed them into dazzling compositions for solo piano. This Dover publication has alleviated years of anxiety that availability of authoritative editions of these masterpieces were becoming thin on the ground. Now, nineteen rare gems of the keyboard literature are once more available, reproduced from extremely rare early editions.

        These transcriptions are hard to find, and it is interesting to find the original versions.
        As with so much other piano music, the pages don't lie flat, so one is constantly having to fold back the book on its spine. The old-fashioned type- set is interesting, but not as clear to read as modern type-set.
