Liszt’s vast output includes a large number of piano transcriptions of pieces that range from Bach organ works to extracts of Wagner, as well as virtuoso fantasias and ‘paraphrases’ of operas by numerous composers, including Mozart, Verdi and Gounod. Liszt freely re-imagined the original works in order to produce dazzling performances. But his piano transcriptions of Beethoven’s nine symphonies are entirely different. These accounts are profoundly faithful to the score, prepared with minute attention to matters of instrumental timbre on the one hand, and suitably pianistic translations of orchestral textures and techniques on the other.
