'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)
These two Feuilles d’Album were published and enjoyed a broad circulation in Liszt’s lifetime. The theme of the E major piece can also be found in the Valse mélancolique, while the A minor piece is the third of the four transcriptions of Liszt’s excellent song Die Zelle in Nonnenwerth.

Die zwei Feuilles d’Album wurden veröffentlicht, und erfreuten sich zu Liszts Lebzeiten allgemeiner Beliebtheit. Das Thema der Stückes in E-Dur findet sich auch in dem Valse mélancholique, während das Stück in A-Moll das dritte von vier Transkriptionen des ausgezeichneten Lisztschen Liedes Die Zelle in Nonnenwerth ist.
