La Mandragore 'Ballade de l'opéra Jean de Nivelle', S698

1881; incomplete

It is very sad indeed that La Mandragore (from Delibes's Jean de Nivelle) remains incomplete. All that exists is a free fantasy in Liszt's last and sparsest style on the orchestral introduction to the opera, then on the introduction to the ballad itself, and then – silence.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

Il est, en vérité, fort dommage que La Mandragore (tirée de Jean de Nivelle de Delibes) demeure incomplète. Tout ce qui existe est une libre fantaisie, dans le style ultime (le plus clairsemé) de Liszt, sur l’introduction orchestrale de l’opéra, puis sur l’introduction à la ballade même, puis … silence.

extrait des notes rédigées par Leslie Howard © 1999
Français: Hypérion

Es ist wirklich sehr traurig, daß La Mandragore (aus Delibes' Jean de Nivelle) unvollendet geblieben ist. Es existiert lediglich eine freie Fantasie in Liszts letztem, kargstem Stil über die Orchestereinleitung zur Oper, danach über die Introduktion zur Ballade selbst, und dann – Stille.
