  • Description

    Six of Liszt's important contributions to the literature of the pianoforte etude occupy the centre of this programme. They are flanked by two works unfamiliar in their present guise: the solo piano versions of Les Preludes and Der nachtlige Zug (the first of the Episodes from Lenau's Faust). The Faust legend preoccupied Liszt for much of his life, Goethe's rendering of it inspiring the orchestral masterpiece, the Faust Symphony. Among the works inspired by Lenau's poem we find the Episodes here presented. Der nachtlige Zug is clearly one of his finest works and its neglect in all of its guises is inexplicable; the second of the episodes is an early version of the phenomenally successful First Mephisto Waltz.
