At last these two highlights of Liszt's piano output are available in a good value Urtext! Every pianist knows the poetic, highly virtuosic legends about Liszt's famous namesakes, "St. Francis of Assisi preaching to the birds" and "St. Francis of Paola walking upon the waves." Liszt draws on all the resources of sound-painting to depict these holy events vividly. Both pieces are preceded by detailed explanations for the interested player in which the composer tells how he was inspired to compose this music. We print these texts in their French and Italian originals, and have added a German and an English translation.
