Wenn Die Letzten Sterne Bleichen Lied for Voice and Piano, Op. Posthumous by Franz Liszt (1811-1886). For Voice. Henle Facsimile. Softcover. 32 pages. G. Henle #HN3220. Published by G. Henle (HL.51483220).
The Bavarian State Library in Munich made a quite sensational discovery in 2007: a previously unknown Lied for voice (soprano) and piano by Franz Liszt was found, which he had written down himself. The work shows Liszt at his best; it was composed in 1843 and dedicated to Count Franz von Pocci from Munich. This was a good enough reason for Henle Publishers to publish the manuscript in the form of a high-quality facsimile, which also contains the music in modern music print and extensive information concerning the fascinating circumstances of its genesis. A true delight for all connoisseurs and lovers of Franz Liszt.
