The fact that piano works by Franz Liszt do not always require the highest technical standards and are not reserved for just a few professionals is proven by the present anthology of the Wiener Urtext Edition.
It contains works by Liszt which, starting from an easy to intermediate technical level, encourage performance rather by expressiveness than by virtuoso demands, and still allow progress in the performance technique which eventually is of benefit not only to playing Liszt.
The selection, ranging from easy pieces such as La cloche sonne or the Consolations Nos. 1 and 2 to more advanced works such as Au lac de Wallenstadt from Années de Pèlerinage, also takes the aspect of popularity within the framework of Liszt’s piano literature into account.
