Notes & Reviews:

These four organ showpieces were performed on the Great Organ of Milan Cathedral. Franz Liszt was a master at taking well-known tunes from popular operas and turning them into highly effective concert paraphrases for piano and orchestra. He had already produced 3 based on Meyerbeer's 1849 hit opera "Le Prophet". The fourth work was to be a vast fantasie and fugue for organ taking the tune sung in Act I by the three Anabaptists urging people to see the error of their ways.
