‘A very good pianist, who understands the Lisztian idiom and presents it with great effectiveness’ (American Record Guide)

Jubelouvertüre von Carl Maria von Weber – Klavierpartitur, S576
J245 Op 59

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Jubelouvertüre is, of course, a bona fide transcription rather than an edition: Weber’s original work, his Opus 59, dates from 1818, and was composed for the Golden Jubilee of King Friedrich August I of Saxony, hence the reference to the anthem Heil dir im Siegerkranz (whose melody is that of God Save the Queen). Liszt’s transcription, which was issued with his arrangements of the overtures to Der Freischütz and Oberon (as Carl Maria von Webers Ouvertüren—Clavier-Partitur von F. Liszt), is faithful to the original in the same manner as is found in his famous transcriptions of the Beethoven symphonies. (Long out of print, although briefly available in a rare Russian volume of transcriptions, this piece has recently been beautifully produced alongside its companion overtures in volume II/23 of the excellent Neue Liszt-Ausgabe.)
