Franz Liszt was one of the most brilliant composer and pianist of the Romantic period. He left numerous orchestral works and vocal works, as well as literary, philosophical and religious writings. His most imposing estate are indisputably his organ works. The focus of this, the fifth part of the series are his late works that contain religious themes and sacred music compositions.
Compositions from this period of Liszt’s output such as "Rosario", "Ave Maria" or "Salve Regina" can be found in the fifth part of the organ works, an extraordinary musical experience guaranteed from the "King of Instruments." With this impressive performance the multi-award-winning organist, conductor and composer Prof. Martin Haselboeck has succeeded, at the Ladegast organ of the cathedral at Schwerin (Opus 58, 1871 ) with his interpretation of Liszt’s organ works to create an impressive sound world.
Especially in the his later works Liszt created individual and smaller compositions for organ or harmonium, which reveal increasingly clear trends in composing.
On the one hand he created intimate, quiet pieces that are now used solely for private prayer exercise and on the other hand blocky "simplified" plenary pieces that are usually associated with anthemic choral works and divorced from any recognizable musical function.
