'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)

Feierlicher Marsch zum heiligen Gral aus dem Bühnenweihfestspiel Parsifal, S450
composer
composer
1883; Parsifal

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Parsifal transcription is surely the strangest. Liszt does not really follow Wagner at all closely. It is as if he were recalling the march in a dream. Liszt’s harmony is a lot less comforting than Wagner’s, and there is no positive conclusion. As in so many of Liszt’s later works, there remains only a desolate silence.
