The aim of the present recording is to vindicate the importance of this musical corpus and to complete it with a hitherto unpublished piece, together with the reconstruction of two pieces that have been lost, and thus to provide the first real complete set of works. And if indeed the repertoire in question has unjustifiably been mired in oblivion, we could also say the same of the interpretive styles of the last quarter of the 19th century and, in particular, of the works belonging to Lisztâ??s â??final yearsâ??. In recent decades, great advances have been made in the reconstruction of the interpretive techniques and practices in terms of the music composed up to the time of Beethovenâ??s death. However, efforts to recover the romantic and post-romantic tradition have, to date, been rather scarce. The present recording was also created with the aim of forming part, both from a purely organological point of view (based on the use of historical instruments) and in a technical and stylistic context, of the still incipient endeavour to recover this interpretive tradition.
