Euphonium and piano - advanced
Composed by Franz Liszt. Arranged by Ralph Sauer. Romantic. Solo part and Piano accompaniment. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2870).
Liszt composed the Romance oubliee around 1844 for Piano. It was forgotten until he heard Violist Hermann Ritter at the first performance of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen at Bayreuth. He fashioned for Ritter a transcription of the work for Viola and Piano as well as ones for the Piano, Violin and Violoncello.
In this short work, the listener hears the agonies of a troubled soul, beginning with a rhapsodic passage, continuing with a cadenza-like section, then a section with arpeggiated figures, finally settling into a peaceful ending.
This 4 minute work is appropriate for advanced performers. With Mr. Sauer's arrangement we now have this lovely version for Euphonium and Piano.
