A cote de ses oeuvres originales, Franz Liszt a laisse aussi un nombre tres important d'arrangements, paraphrases ou reminiscences elaborees a partir d'operas ou de pages religieuses et, surtout, maintes transcriptions pour piano ou pour orgue d'apres des lieder, symphonies, cantates ou autres oeuvres de compositeurs alors reconnus comme Bach, Beethoven ou meme Chopin. Or, partant de cet exemple, certains organistes se sont efforces a leur tour de transcrire pour leur instrument des pieces de piano ou des poemes symphoniques de Liszt pour un resultat souvent convaincant. C'est le cas de Jeanne Demessieux qui, selon les habitudes en vogue dans les annees Dupre, a d'abord pratique le piano avant d'atteindre des sommets a l'orgue.

Along with his original works, the composer also left a large number of arrangements, paraphrases or reminiscences elaborated from operas or religious works and, above all, a host of transcriptions for piano or organ of lieder, symphonies, cantatas and other scores by composers recognised at the time, like Bach. Beethoven and even Chopin. Taking this example as a point of departure, certain organists have in turn endeavoured to transcribe piano pieces or symphonic poems by Liszt for their instrument, and the result has often been convincing. Such is the case with Jeanne Demessieux who, in keeping with habits that were in vogue during the Dupre years, first practiced the piano before achieving the heights at the organ.
