A 200-page volume of original music by Liszt for violin and piano? It is scarcely credible that such a significant body of work by such a major composer should have remained in total obscurity for so long. In fact, these extraordinary pieces have never before been issued together, and the present publication marks the largest collaborative project ever undertaken by The Liszt Society and The Hardie Press. These works traverse Liszt's whole composing life, encompassing great virtuoso concert pieces and wonderfully intimate miniatures. They show a serious effort to come to grips with what a solo violin might be able to accomplish, and at the same time demonstrate a deep and affecting skill in the art of duo writing.
