Vallee d'Obermann

By Franz Liszt

Detailed Description

Vallee d'Obermann (Piano Solo). Composed by Franz Liszt (1811-1886). Edited by Ernst Herttrich. For Piano. Piano (Harpsichord), 2-hands. Henle Music Folios. Pages: V and 21. SMP Level 10 (Advanced). Softcover. 27 pages. G. Henle #HN813. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480813).

"Obermann," the epistolary novel by the French Romantic Senancour, inspired Liszt to write the first volume in his collection "Annees de Pelerinage" (HN 173). A wanderer is searching for his ideals in the solitude of the Swiss mountains. The composer was able to identify with these ideas to such a great degree that he prefaced the eighth piece ("Le Mal de Pays") with an extract from the novel's 38th letter. It is this text which also accompanies our edition of the sixth piece "Vall'e d'Obermann." To aid comprehension we have also included translations of the French original into German and English. Now the most important composition in the "Annees I" is also available in a separate Henle urtext edition.
