Here they are finally available in Urtext edition, these two "jewels" of the piano work of Liszt, and at a modest price! Every pianist knows them, these two "Legends", poetic but of great virtuosity, composed by Liszt on his famous patron saints: "Saint Francis of Assisi: preaching to the birds" and "Saint Francis of Paule walking on the waves". In each of them, the composer uses all the registers of the sound palette to translate the spiritual event clearly and legibly. He prefaces the two "Legends" with a detailed commentary, where he informs the musician about his sources of inspiration. We reproduce here the original texts (in French and Italian), accompanying them also with a German and English translation.
