Volume 6 Twenty One Songs

Liszt's songs represent a very fine but rather neglected area of his prolific output, and his ability to set a variety of languages with felicity makes him unique in the history of the art-song. The present volume, updated and corrected from its 1975 edition (entitled 'Selected Songs') presents 21 of Liszt's songs, mostly from his later life, in settings of German, French, Italian, English and Hungarian texts. With Introductory Notes and English Translations of Song Texts. CONTENTS: Angiolin dal biondo crin; Tre sonetti di Petrarca; Und wir dachten der Toten; Des Tages laute Stimmen schweigen; Vergiftet sind meine Lieder; Morgens steh ich auf und frage; Ich möchte hingehn; Ein Fichtenbaum steht einsam (first and second settings); J'ai perdu ma force et ma vie; Ihr glocken von Marling; Go not, happy day; Enfant si j'étais roi; Ich scheide; Einst; Gebet; Sei still; Die tote Nachtigall; Isten veled!
