Hector Berlioz’s Harold en Italie draws both on Byron’s Childe Harold and the composer’s own experiences in Italy as winner of the Prix de Rome. Franz Liszt’s rarely heard transcription admirably encapsulates this work’s narrative dramas and landscapes, while his meditative Romance oubliée derives from an earlier song, Oh pourquoi donc. Austrian-born Kurt Roger studied with Schoenberg, retaining his teacher’s contrapuntal tendencies while rejecting serial techniques for the lyricism which can be found in his Viola Sonata. Further chamber music by Kurt Roger can be heard on Naxos NX 2238.
 

 "... Everything goes well on this CD, so if you are curious about the music, there is no reason to hold back."

Raymond Tuttle - Fanfare - January/February 2014


"... The Berlioz is a tour de force of both arrangement and execution ..."   ****

Roger Nichols - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes Section) - December 2013
