Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Only the deafest of Wagnerians would try to make much of a case for the quite appalling quality of most of his piano music. But one or two of the late, short pieces are very attractive—and they are all dedicated to attractive titled ladies. This Album Leaf is fully titled In das Album der Fürstin M.—the Princess Metternich—and dates from 1861, two years after Tristan but much more conservative in idiom.
