Liszt by Victor Herbert

Victor Herbert.

Victor Herbert’s Orchestra
Liszt: A Dream of Love

Recorded in 1911

Once again we hear Victor Herbert’s meticulously rehearsed orchestra playing a popular classical favorite. Last time we heard Puccini; this time it’s Franz Liszt’s famous Liebestraum in an orchestral transcription that really gives the fluttery woodwinds a workout. For 1911, the sound (it’s a twelve-inch Victor record) is really astonishingly good, and Herbert as a conductor seems to feel the music as though he had written it himself.

      Thank you for pointing out this strange error. The link goes to the music now, the way it should.
