Harmonie nach Rossini's CaritÓ, S701j
1847; incomplete
La charitÚ

Introduction  EnglishFranšaisDeutsch
The Harmonie nach Rossini's Carità is marked to follow ‘Palestrina’, and so belongs to the first planned cycle of Harmonies poétiques et religieuses and would have succeeded the Miserere d'après Palestrina. It is interesting that La charité was considered for this volume; so too was the Stabat Mater, S172b – a Liszt original but with an introduction taken from Rossini's Cujus animam (Stabat Mater). Of course Liszt later transcribed this last piece and issued it with the final version of La charité, and so there was no further connection between Rossini and the Harmonies.

from notes by Leslie Howard ę 1999
