'There are riches galore here … Howard, as with every volume so far, brings to the recording studio the excitement of a live performance while never neglecting or unduly emphasising the poetry and sentiment' (CDReview)

Die Rose – Romance von Louis Spohr [aus dem Singspiel Zemire und Azor], S571
published 1876
1818/9; Zemire und Azor

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Spohr’s opera Zemire und Azor had already been unkindly relegated to history when Liszt made his simple transcription of its best-loved romance, and so the piano arrangement is often catalogued amongst Liszt’s song transcriptions. Many a collector of 78rpm gramophone records or transfers therefrom will be familiar with Die Rose as ‘Rose softly blooming’—which was in its day a ubiquitous parlour song.
