Réminiscences des "Puritains" – Grande fantaisie sur des thèmes de l'opéra de Bellini, S390ii
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Puritani fantasy has remained a rarity, because of its great length and difficulty no doubt, and Liszt extracted and somewhat simplified the concluding Polonaise for separate performance. For the second edition of the fantasy – which must have followed the first almost immediately since it is not marked as a nouvelle édition in any way and still bears the Opus number 7 – he introduced some alternative left-hand chromatic rumbles towards the end of the first section and an optional shortening of the second section, with an entirely newly-composed bridge passage, giving a completely different atmosphere to the work.
