Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reflecting the life of Christ from the nativity to the Passion and Resurrection, Liszt’s oratorio Christus was premiered in 1873 and enjoyed considerable success. The movements he transcribed for piano are dynamic and virtuosic but also pastoral and meditative, including marches and passages of transfiguring beauty. The transcriptions of movements from the oratorio The Legend of St Elisabeth contains music of stirring power: plainsong, a hymn, a march and a Hungarian folk-song. This is the forty-seventh volume in Naxos's celebrated complete Liszt piano music series, and features prolific pianist Henry Kramer.
