Description: Suddenly it’s a Heller renaissance with releases in consecutive months. These late compilations, published in 1868-69 and 1874, are as much an homage to Schumann and Mendelssohn as their overall titles and as such individual musical portraits in Op. 138 as Lieder ohne Wörte, Kuriose Geschichte, and Waldestraum while also offering us five different pictures of Zigeuner and three of Elfen. Luigi Gerosa (piano).
