'I constantly admired his near orchestral range of sonority—his strength in grandiloquence and his hypnotic sustaining power in intimacy. Everything is played with total conviction' (Gramophone)

'Even if it contained nothing but the [early version of the] Consolations, this volume would be one of the most revelatory in the series … A major contribution to the catalogue. Enthusiastically endorsed' (Fanfare, USA)

'Muy interesantes, indispensables para lisztianos' (Ritmo, Spain)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Fanfare is an unpublished transcription – in a copyist’s hand but entitled and dated ‘Weimar ’75’ in preparation for the engraver in Liszt’s hand – of the first of the Zwei Festgesänge zur Enthüllung des Carl August Denkmals in Weimar am 3. September 1875: Carl August weilt mit uns (‘Two festival songs for the unveiling of the Carl August memorial: Carl August stay with us’) originally scored for men’s chorus, brass, timpani and organ.
