Notes and Editorial Reviews

Franz Liszt’s “years of pilgrimage” are more than a journey through Switzerland and Italy—they are also a musical journey through time and, ultimately, through the composer’s own self. Outstanding German pianist Ragna Schirmer pays respectful visits to these individual places with profound affinity for the complicated spiritual world of the Abbé Liszt. Links to the Renaissance are underscored by the madrigals of Gesualdo and Marenzio, sung by the Amarcord Ensemble.
