Description

Franz Liszt certainly would have been very pleased with Zuzana Ferjen 269;íková's selection of the Aloys Mooser organ in the Fribourg Cathedral for the first release of her complete recording of his organ works. Liszt himself travelled to Fribourg with George Sand in 1836 in order to have this instrument presented to him. Inspired by this marvellous organ, he then repeatedly wrote compositions and transcriptions for performance on the organ, constantly expanding the sound panorama to keep up with the advances in organ design. A surprise comes right at the beginning when Ferjen 269;íková presents the famous Prelude and Fugue on B-A-C-H in the very rarely performed original version premiered by the Liszt pupil Alexander Winterberger at the Merseburg Cathedral in 1856. Ferjenciíková's program selections demonstrate just how broad Liszt's interest was in the music of his contemporaries and earlier generations. Here we find transcriptions ranging from Bach to Otto Nicolai, recorded in the very finest SACD technology and can be admired in its full tonal splendour in the best 3-D sound.
