Pilgrims' Chorus : Organ : (arr. Franz Liszt; ed. Jurgen Geiger), : Franz Liszt : Jurgen Geiger : Richard Wagner : Schott Series : Softcover : Published by Schott : # ED21321
Pilgrims' Chorus by : Franz Liszt : Jurgen Geiger : Richard Wagner

During his time in Weimar (1848-1861); Liszt developed a then entirely new organ style which stands out for both orchestral and pianistic elements. Together with the choirmaster Alexander Wilhelm Gottschalg (1827-1908) from Tiefurt; he regularly initiated so-called 'organ conferences'. And it was at the suggestion of Gottschalg that the present arrangement of the Pilgrim's Choir from the opera 'Tannhäuser' was written. With his version for organ; Liszt; by means of this example; laid the foundations for the (not always undisputed) tradition; extending to the present day; of organ transcriptions from the operas of Wagner. 'Organistic' elements in the pilgrims' Choir are the classical chorale theme; the solemn 'sacred' atmosphere of the solemn tempo as well as the expressive cantability. The linear intensification; from the antiphonal-organ-like piano dolce of the beginning to the 'full organ'; can be realized in a convincing manner with an orchestrally conceived three-manual organ; with the sensitive use of the swell box and the successive; seamless build-up of the crescendo pedal being of particular significance. Important repertoire piece marking the 200th birthday of Richard Wagner in 2013.
