Notes & Reviews:

The internationally renowned Austrian conductor Martin Haselböck releases this CD to honor Franz Liszt's 200th Birthday, including two of Liszt orchestral works, played on 19th Century period instruments. In addition to this release, Martin Haselböck is leading a seven-concert series called "The Sound of Weimar" in which the complete orchestral works of Liszt in their original orchestrations will be performed.

"It's easy to understand why this music was regarded as cutting-edge, because it offered novel sonorities, especially in the instrumental combinations, and some special effects of orchestration that had few practitioners, other than Berlioz and Wagner. Yet Liszt's explosive depiction of Dante's "Divine Comedy" paves the way for the tone poems of Richard Strauss and the symphonies of Gustav Mahler, and the careful listener will notice that the leanness and transparency of the orchestral writing is quite different from the more homogenous scoring by the Classically oriented composers of the time. Haselböck is authoritative in his direction, undoubtedly from his years of experience in performing the organ works of Liszt, and his ensemble plays with acute clarity and drama, as befits this music. NCA's sound is spacious and vivid in its dimensions, aided by a pleasant acoustic ambience that gives the tone colors a delightful resonance." -All Music Guide
