Reviews

'Another valuable instalment in Howard's vast trek through Liszt's piano music' (Classic CD)
Liszt’s tribute to Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette is one of his most endearing fantasies. He really uses several motifs from the opera, all concerned with the partings of the lovers: the end of the balcony scene, the morning after the marriage, and the scene at Juliet’s tomb, taking quite small phrases to create what almost amounts to an original composition.

Le tribut de Liszt à Roméo et Juliette de Gounod est l’une de ses plus belles fantaisies. Il utilisa vraiment plusieurs motifs de cet opéra, tirés des scènes de la séparation des amants: la fin de la scène du balcon, la matin suivant le mariage, reflétant la scène à la tombe de Juliette, ne prenant que de courtes phrases pour créer ce qui devient quasiment une nouvelle composition.

Français: Isabelle Dubois

Liszts Würdigung von Gounods Roméo et Juliette ist eine seiner entzückendsten Fantasien. Er gebraucht tatsächlich mehrere Motive aus der Oper, die alle mit dem Abschied des Liebespaares verbunden sind: das Ende der Balkonszene, der Morgen nach der Hochzeit, und die Szene am Grabe der Julia. In allen diesen Motiven gebraucht er ganz kurze Phrasen, mit denen er etwas schafft, was fast eine originale Komposition ist.
