Deux Transcriptions d'après Rossini, S553
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The two Rossini transcriptions are very close to the originals: the Cujus animam so delighted Liszt that he also arranged it for voice and organ, and even for trombone and organ. The original aria itself has always been popular, despite the occasional humourless critic who disapproves of Rossini’s treatment of sacred texts. La charité is less well known, at any rate as a sacred chorus, but its apparent familiarity stems from a version of the same material at a far greater velocity (in the form of a tarantella) and especially in Benjamin Britten’s orchestration as the finale to his Soirées musicales.
