Ballades by : Franz Liszt : Rena Charnin Mueller
Liszt wrote his two Ballades in 1845-49 and 1853 during a time of personal turmoil. The successful virtuoso increasingly saw himself as a composer who strove after formal clarity; as shown by the B minor sonata that was also composed in 1853. When Liszt began work on the first Ballade; he had just separated from his mistress of many years; Marie Comtesse d'Agoult. He called the first sketches for the work Dernières Illusions. A better-known work is the second Ballade in B minor; with whose ending he struggled (the two fortissimo endings in Liszt's autograph have been published for the first time in the appendix to our edition).
