Franz Liszt was a frequent guest of the acting cardinal at the Villa d'Este, situated in Tivoli near Rome. His Jeux d'eaux; describes the glittering fountains, part of the water features at the villa; in measure 144 Liszt also added a quotation from the Bible to the musical text about the water of life,; thus giving the work a religious context. Maurice Ravel, who was also inspired to wrtie a composition Jeuz d'eau; (HN841) thanks to Liszt, gave his work a markedly secular accompanying text. Our new single edition from the third volume of the Années de Pèlerinage; (HN175) is a counterpart to the recently published Henle Urtext edition of Ravel's masterpiece.
