Wanderer Fantasy - Schubert-Liszt / Totentanz + Csardas Macabre - Liszt - TV34265S

£5.99

Product description

(featuring pianist Alfred Brendel, backed by the Vienna Volksoper Orchestra, conducted by Michael Gielen)

"Wanderer Fantasy" was a work, composed in its original form, by Franz Schubert (1797-1828), later transcripted by Franz Liszt (1811-86). It is not surprising that Liszt took such an interest in the piece, as the piano writing and form of the piece, both show a strong affinity with the Hungarian man's general aims. It has even been described as "the earliest and best of all symphonic poems".
Side One : Wanderer Fantasy for Piano & Orchestra, by Schubert-Liszt.

"Totentanz" is a most idiosynchratic, not-to-mention remarkable, piece by Liszt, which shows "music haunted by evil", a feeling for the devil and damnation. It could well have been inspired by a comment by Gregorovius, who witnessed Liszt's ultra-virtuosic playing of the piano, describing the Hungarian as "Mephistopheles disguised as an Abbe" (sic).
Side Two : 1) Totentanz for Piano & Orchestra, by Liszt.

Liszt was staying in Venice, in the Early 1880s, when the solemnly-grand sight, of funeral processions of gondolas, inspired him to compose "Csardas Macabre", a work that displays both unusual austerity and astonishing harmonic invention. By co-incidence, Richard Wagner died in the Water City, in 1883, shortly after Liszt had completed the work.
Side Two : 2) Csardas Macabre for Solo Piano, by Liszt.
