'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The Korrekturblatt turned up attached to a Liszt letter and is now at the Istituto Liszt in Bologna. It certainly applies to the earliest manuscript of La lugubre gondola (a manuscript which has only recently surfaced and which is not yet available for recording) which dates from December 1882, and is intended as an alternative passage for nine bars towards the end of the work.

Korrekturblatt, découvert attaché à une lettre de Liszt et désormais conservé à l’Istituto Liszt de Bologne, s’applique certainement au tout premier manuscrit de La lugubre gondola (qui a fait surface récemment et n’est pas encore disponible pour un enregistrement), qui remonte à décembre 1882 et est conçu comme un passage alternatif concernant neuf mesures vers la fin de l’œuvre.

Das Korrekturblatt fand sich an einen Brief Liszts angeheftet und wird heute im Instituto Liszt in Bologna aufbewahrt. Es bezieht sich mit Sicherheit auf das früheste Manuskript von La lugubre gondola (ein erst kürzlich aufgetauchtes Manuskript, das noch nicht zur Einspielung zur Verfügung steht); es stammt vom Dezember 1882 und ist als Alternativpassage für neun Takte gegen Ende des Werkes bestimmt.
