'A fascinating anthology' (Gramophone)

'His idiomatic grasp and utter reliability remain as admirable as in earlier instalments. Excellent sonics and informative notes by the performer' (American Record Guide)

'I can think of no more fascinating encounter than that provided by these sets' (Classic CD)
The little album-leaf version of Die Nebensonnen turned up recently in Prague. The single page of manuscript is undated, and it has never been published. It consists of just the first paragraph of the Schubert song but unlike the published transcription in the twelve songs from Winterreise is set in Schubert’s original key of A major. Slight divergencies from Schubert’s melody may indicate that Liszt was writing from memory at the time.

La version de Die Nebensonnen sur un petit feuillet d’album a été récemment découverte à Prague. Cette seule page de manuscrit n’est pas datée, et elle n’a jamais été publiée. Elle comporte juste le premier paragraphe du chant de Schubert, mais, à la différence de la transcription publiée dans les douze chants de Winterreise, elle est mise en musique dans la tonalité originale de Schubert en La majeur. De légères divergences par rapport à la mélodie de Schubert tendent à indiquer que Liszt écrivait de mémoire à l’époque.

Die kleine Albumblatt-Fassung der Nebensonnen tauchte kürzlich in Prag auf Das einzelne Manuskriptblatt trägt kein Datum und wurde niemals veröffentlicht. Es beinhaltet lediglich den ersten Abschnitt des Schubertliedes, doch steht dieser—im Gegensatz zur in den zwölf Liedern aus der Winterreise veröffentlichten Transkription—in der ursprünglich von Schubert verwendeten Tonart A-Dur. Leichte Abweichungen von Schuberts Melodie mögen andeuten, daß Liszt zu jener Zeit aus dem Gedächtnis komponierte.
