5.0 out of 5 stars Liszt the Impresario - Part 6 August 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This sixth and final volume of the "Liszt at the Opera" series is much like the previous volume in that it will appeal primarily to Liszt connoisseurs. Most of the works on this 2-CD volume are alternate versions of fantasies already introduced in previous volumes. Some of these versions are distinctly different while others sound like copies. However, all of these operatic transcriptions/fantasies, especially the newcomers to the series, are ambrosia to the Lisztian or Romantic piano lover.

Howard has reached the bottom of the barrel as far as uncovering more operatic transcriptions or paraphrases. Not surprisingly, he has seen fit to record more drafts and revisions. The "first version" of the "La fiancee" fantasy is acutely different from the final version with an extra four minutes of extended phrases and embellishments. I actually prefer this first version of a work which is essentially Liszt's first operatic fantasy (it dates from 1829). Liszt's Reminiscences of Meyerbeer's "Les Huguenots" makes its third appearance, this time as the "second version" which may tack a good seven minutes of material onto the first version, but is barely distinguishable from the "third" and final version (different coda). Howard also records more alternate versions of the "La sonnambula" fantasy, the Reminiscences of Bellini's "Il Puritani" and the "Valse a cappriccio." These will not offer much startling contrasts or new music material to those familiar with the music. In my opinion, only the astute Liszt aficionado will detect significant differences between these versions or find reasons to enjoy them over other versions previously recorded.

This recording earns a solid five stars, though, for the new works Howard unearths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Liszt's best opera transcriptions here July 11, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Volume VI concentrates on longer pieces: Reminiscences des Huguenots (Meyerbeer), Fantaisie on La sonnambula (Bellini), Tannhauser overture (Wagner), etc. Solid final entry in the "Liszt at the Opera" series. Highly recommended.
