Chœur des pèlerins aus der Oper Tannhäuser von Richard Wagner 'Chor der älteren Pilger', S443ii
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
No one could accuse the seventy-four-year-old Liszt of piling insurmountable difficulties into his second transcription of the Pilgrims’ Chorus from Tannhäuser (the early editions could not decide between ‘old’ or ‘young’ pilgrims, but Liszt specifies ‘old’), which strips the music to its barest essentials, but retains an adaptation of the coda which Liszt composed for his first transcription of Wagner’s piece. (On both occasions, Liszt provides long and short versions of the coda, and the longer is recorded here.)
