Albumblatt 'in das Album der Fürstin M.'

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.
