Love Song (Dedication) from “Myrthen” Op. 25

Arrangement for Piano Solo by Liszt

Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition Format: Softcover Composer: Robert Schumann Arranger: Franz Liszt Editor: Annette Oppermann

In his virtuosic piano arrangement of Schumann's “Widmung” (“Du meine Seele, du mein Herz”), Franz Liszt transformed this intimate song into a dramtic declaration that reaches its powerful climax at the phrase “Mein guter Geist, mein bess'res Ich,” using chords to be played con somma passione. In Liszt's autograph the melody is overlaid by the song text, but he changes the title to “Liebeslied.” The first edition, published in Leipzig in 1848, retained this heading, and thus the song is still known today under two different titles. In collaboration with Liszt scholar Mária Eckhardt Henle Verlag presents this best-known of all of Liszt's Schumann arrangements in a reliable Henle Urtext quality edition.
