Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
