Liszt, one of the greatest virtuoso pianists of his time, wrote an impressive number of works by other composers for his favorite instrument - a key work of the nineteenth century, and Wagner's Tristan and Isolde was a natural part of it. It is from his brilliant transcription for piano of the famous final scene ("Mild und leise, wie er lächelt") that also comes the title commonly used today of "Death of Isolde" - Wagner still spoke of "transfiguration From Isolde. We present this refined piece, but not an insurmountable difficulty, in a Urtext edition of the best quality, including the original fingerings of the keyboard master. The sung text of this final scene of the drama is also reproduced as an appendix to our edition. Our contribution for the year 2013 Wagner-nbsp!
