Des toten Dichters liebe, a Melodram by Liszt

Clara Sanchis, actress, and Miriam Gómez-Morán, piano

Der traurige Mönch S 348 by Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

With a terrifying story line not without touches of humour, The Dead Poet’s Love is based on a text by the Hungarian poet Mór Jókai. This melodrama, composed in 1874, marked Liszt’s reunion with the genre and tells of the return of a tormented spectre who, after bothering his widow and their son for decades, is finally able to take them with him.
