Liszt: Années de pèlerinage
While the first volume of Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage (‘Pilgrim Years’) was inspired primarily by the landscape of Switzerland, the creative impetus for the second volume was the art and literature of Italy. Edition Peters is proud to continue its acclaimed series of Liszt critical editions from world-renowned Liszt expert and concert pianist Leslie Howard with this new urtext edition of Années de pèlerinage, Deuxième Année – Italie. Containing an extensive critical commentary and introductory notes, the edition (like its predecessor Suisse (EP72782)) also contains reproductions of the half-tint illustrations by Robert Kretschmer that appeared in the first edition. Also included in this prestige volume, a must-have for any serious Liszt pianist, is the supplementary volume Venezia e Napoli, beautiful and ingenious revisions of earlier works based on Italian street music.
