'These clearly recorded discs should find a place in every music library in the land!' (Gramophone)

'Another abundant, revelatory, superb instalment in what is looming as perhaps the most adventurous, most consistently realized, and grandest project in recording history' (Fanfare, USA)
This album leaf was not entitled by Liszt but is a simple transcription of one of his songs, Gestorben war ich, later to become widely known in the version as the second of the Liebesträume (recorded in Volume 19). There is a third, also very simple, version of the piece as one of the Klavierstücke dedicated to the Baroness von Meyendorff (recorded in Volume 11).

Cette Feuille d’album ne reçut pas de titre de Liszt mais est une simple transcription de l’une de ses chansons, qui deviendra très connue plus tard dans la version où elle apparaît en tant que seconde pièce du Liebesträume (enregistrée au Volume 19). Il existe une troisième version du morceau, très simple elle aussi, dans le Klavierstücke dédié à la baronesse von Meyendorff (enregistrée au Volume 11).

Diese Albumblatt gab Liszt keinen Titel; vielmehr handelt es sich dabei um eine einfache Transkription eines seiner Lieder, daß später in weiten Kreisen in seiner Version als zweites der Liebesträume bekannt wurde (aufgenommen auf Teil 9). Es gibt eine dritte, ebenfalls sehr einfache Version des Stückes in Form eines der Klavierstücke, die der Baronin von Meyendorff gewidmet sind (aufgenommen auf Teil 11).
