Reviews

'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The Poco adagio aus der Graner Messe is an excerpt from the Agnus Dei of the composer's Missa Solemnis, S9; the second Album-Leaf presents a strangely misquoted version of the principal theme from the symphonic poem Orpheus; and the third, although marked in the manuscript as an excerpt from the symphonic poem Die Ideale, is actually laid out in a way which more closely resembles the trio section of the Künstlerfestzug, whence the theme in question derives.

Poco adagio aus der Graner Messe, est extrait de l’Agnus Dei de la Missa solemnis, S9 de Liszt; le deuxième Album-Leaf propose une version curieusement déformée du thème principal du poème symphonique Orpheus; et le troisième, quoique marqué dans le manuscrit comme étant extrait du poème symphonique Die Idéale, est disposé d’une mamière qui ressemble bien plus à la section en trio de la Künstlerfestzug, d’où dérive le thème en question.

Français: Hypérion

Das Blatt, das die Kataloge als Poco adagio aus der Graner Messe führen, ist ein Exzerpt des Agnus Dei aus der Missa Solemnis des Komponisten, S 9; das nächste Blatt stellt eine merkwürdig falsch zitierte Version des Hauptthemas der sinfonischen Dichtung Orpheus dar; das dritte, obwohl im Manuskript als Exzerpt der sinfonischen Dichtung Die Ideale bezeichnet, ist in Wahrheit auf eine Art angelegt, die sehr dem Trioabschnitt aus dem Künstlerfeldzug ähnelt, aus dem das fragliche Thema stammt (s.o.).
