Jacket NM- / LP NM

This fascinating LP from Philips (411 117-1, Dutch pressing, silver/red label, stereo) collects nearly all of Liszt's small output of chamber music, all original compositions and settings of his own, performed here undering the guiding light of 20th Century Music specialist Rienbert de Leeuw, who reveals the visionary stature of these little-known works with an estimable group of fellow musicians.

This is remarkable music and should be heard much more often.

The musicians heard here are:

Reinbert de Leeuw, piano

Vera Beths, violin

Anner Bijlsma, cello

Gerda Ockers, harp

Bob Zimmerman, harmonium

Included are the following chamber music works of Liszt: 

Elégie I – for cello, piano, harp, and harmonium (6:28)

La lugubre gondola – for violin and piano (10:28)

Elégie II – for violin and piano (5:07)

Romance oubilée – for violin and piano (4:17)

La notte – for violin and piano (12:56)

On the reverse side of the jacket are insightful liner notes in English and French (by Max Harrison) and in German (by Wilfried Szcepan. The remarkable cover photo was taken by Flavio Roiter. This recording was produced by Harlekijn in 1983.
