Alfred Music Publishing is the worlds largest educational music publisher. Alfred produces educational, reference, pop, and performance materials for teachers, students, professionals, and hobbyists spanning every musical instrument, style, and difficulty level. Presumably inspired by Charles Sainte-Beuve's collection of poems, this set of six pieces provides a wonderful introduction to Liszt's melodic invention, mood evocation and harmonic language. The most popular of his shorter works, these pieces are successful when performed individually as well as in various combinations. This edition contains Dr. Hinson's helpful pedal markings and performance suggestions.
