Uploaded on Apr 7, 2019
Franz Liszt's transcription (S. 404, composed in 1849) of Duke Ernst II's opera 'Tony, oder Die Vergeltung' ('Tony, or The Retribution'), which was itself composed in 1848.
The elder brother of Albert, Queen Victoria's Prince Consort, Duke Ernst II of Saxe-Coburg Gotha was prolific as a composer, with five operas to his credit. 'Tony' was completed in 1848 and conducted by Liszt at the Weimar Court Theatre in April 1849.
Liszt's transcription comprises the Jagdchor (Hunting Chorus) and Steyrer (Styrian) pastoral elements from the opera, with characteristic music for the hunt framing the other material in the transcription. The piano arrangement is described as "after motifs by E.H.z.S.-C.-G., Ernst, Herzog zu Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha.
The default audio uses the Salamander soundfont. I've set the tempo and dynamics according to a beautiful performance of the piece by Han Chen, the Taiwanese pianist.
