Franz Liszt: Ballades

Of Liszt’s two Ballades, the second is the more substantial, the more menacing and also the more popular. Its inspiration is supposed to have been Gottfried Bürgers Lenore, a spectral romance in which a ghostly rider, posing as Lenore’s dead lover, carries her away on a macabre night ride through an eerie landscape illuminated by flashes of lightning. It culminates in a revelation of the rider as Death himself—a skeleton with scythe and hourglass.
The earlier, first Ballade is a brighter work, clearly inspired by Chopin, who died in the year of its publication.

xx Recording of Liszts Ballads
August 18, 2002, 02:37:30 PM by Diabolos

Hi all,

I'm looking for a good recording of Liszts Ballads; since the 2nd one does have three possible endings, I was wondering if anyone knows a recording where all of these are played.

Thanks a lot.
