Bénédiction et Serment – Deux motifs de Benvenuto Cellini de Berlioz, S396

1834/7, revised 1852; Benvenuto Cellini

Berlioz made a new version of Benvenuto Cellini for Liszt to produce in Weimar, and Liszt sought to improve the popularity of the work by immediately issuing the present transcription—of the Pope’s Blessing and of Cellini’s Oath—for piano and for piano duet. This remains another of those operas whose rarity is inexplicable.
