Ouvertüre aus der Oper Oberon von Carl Maria von Weber – Klavierpartitur von F. Liszt, S574

composer
1843
composer
1825/6; Oberon, J306

 
The transcription of the overture to Weber’s Oberon is, like that of the Freischütz Overture, a literal piano version of the original, but Liszt offers a number of passages in alternative pianistic garb which actually convey a better sense of the spirit of the orchestra—and this is among the most spirited of Weber’s pieces.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1994

La transcription de l’ouverture de l’opéra de Weber, Oberon, est, tout comme l’ouverture de Freischütz, une version littérale pour piano de l’œuvre originale. Liszt offre un nombre surprenant de passages pianistiques qui alternent entre eux, démontrant avec plus de précision l’esprit de l’orchestre—cette œuvre étant classée parmi les plus intrépides de Weber.

Die Transkription der Ouvertüre zu Webers Oberon ist, wie die der Freischütz-Ouvertüre, eine genaue Klavierversion des Originals, doch liefert Liszt auch eine Reihe von Passagen in abweichendem pianistischen Gewand, die in der Tat den Geist des Orchesters besser übermitteln—und dies ist eines der temperamentvollsten Stücke Webers.
