Rigoletto - Concert Paraphrase by : Franz Liszt
Franz Liszt not only wrote a series of opera paraphrases during his virtuoso years; but also composed some in his Weimar years from 1848 onwards. He did not; however; write them for himself but for the pianist friend (who was also his son-in-law) Hans von Bülow. Amongst these works; the paraphrase on Giuseppe Verdi's “Rigoletto;” which was published in 1860; occupies a special place on account of its incredible virtuosity and at the same time its filigree texture. On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Liszt's birth; G. Henle Publishers is presenting a facsimile of the autograph of this work; with an extensive commentary; as well as an Urtext edition (HN978). Since this is a working manuscript; the facsimile also offers fascinating insights into Liszt's manner of working.
