'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)

Weimars Volkslied, S542i
composer
1857; No 1 in C major

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The five-versed account of Weimars Volkslied is the piano version of the choral work composed in 1857 to mark the laying of the cornerstone of the monument to the aforementioned Prince Carl August. Of its kind, it is an excellent ceremonial piece, with moments of depth and beauty not normally associated with such music.
