The complete orchestral works by Franz Liszt in their original sound.
Orchester Wiener Akademie
Release date: July 2018
Orchester Wiener Akademie have made over 70 recordings under Martin Haselböck on period instruments, performing works by Bach to Weber. Highlights include RESOUND BEETHOVEN, the complete recordings of all of Beethoven's symphonies and piano concertos on Alpha Classics; and THE SOUND OF WEIMAR, the first complete recording of all of Liszt's works for orchestra on the historical instruments of the composer's time.
Liszt's orchestral works ... have always been the black sheep of the repertoire. Although there are several complete recordings (by Haitink, Masur and Plasson), none of these uses historical instruments of the 19th century. But this is exactly what the Austrian conductor Martin Haselböck offers. The pieces sound less militarised, more defiant, more contemplative and more experimental, all at the same time.
...For those, like me, who missed the separate releases of these recordings, made in Liszt's birthplace of Raiding beginning in 2010, this box set represents a real asset. It demands, as it were, justice for Franz Liszt.'
