DESCRIPTION

Originally scored for tenor solo, mixed chorus, and orchestra, this marvelous psalm setting by Liszt exhibits skillful use of thematic transformation, like many of his other works from the same period. The many sections within this piece are bound together by related motives and well-written transitions. More importantly, Liszt had taken great care in setting his music to the text—emotions from grief to joy are expressed in the utmost musical way. This transcription makes the beauty of this piece available to the advanced pianist.


REVIEWS

"[Sato's] transcription of Liszt's Psalm XIII ... makes an effective concert piece, at once pianistically idiomatic and dramatically coherent.... The result is a gripping 20 minutes of music ... which you might have mistaken for one of Liszt's lost masterpieces for piano in this remarkable (and, happily, very playable) transcription by Sato."

—John Salmon, Piano & Keyboard, January/February 1998
