Description: This is a bigger deal than first glance might suggest. Liszt’s orchestrations of the first three Schubert piano pieces listed above are much more complex than the originals and, having been first arranged in 1859/60, they were only printed ten years later after much work. The Reitermarsch could be a symphony’s scherzo and the Trauermarsch a slow movement while the Divertissement is like another of Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies. The two Traueroden of 1860 add to the funereal effect of the Trauermarsch and the closing piece, the Vexilla Regis, only received its first performance in its orchestral version by these forces in 2013. Gottlieb Wallisch (1851 Streicher piano), Orchester Wiener Akademie; Martin Haselböck.
