Sonata in B Minor and Other Works for Piano
Among Franz Liszt’s many brilliant compositions for piano, few have been so admired and performed as the Sonata in B Minor, long considered one of the greatest piano compositions of the 19th century. A work of consummate structural ingenuity, it combines and transforms four distinctive themes in one long movement, in the free, rhapsodic development characteristic of the symphonic poem.
A great favorite of pianists and their audiences, this piano masterpiece is reprinted here from the authoritative Franz Liszt-Stiftung edition published by Breitkopf & Härtel. Included with it are a number of other well-known Liszt compositions. Among these are the six beautiful pieces entitled Consolations; all ten works in the Harmonies poétiques et religieuses, including the popular “Funérailles”; the two Ballades, larger-scale works which require considerable technical prowess; and the two Légendes, “The Sermon to the Birds of St. Francis of Assisi” and “St. Francis of Paola Walking on the Waves.”
Pianists, music scholars and music lovers will find this authoritative, affordable and sturdily produced volume an essential addition to their music libraries.
