About

Gabriel Pierné’s work refers to the map of the Land of Tenderness (French: Carte du Tendre). This was an engraved map of a non-existent land with a road leading to an ideal love. Albert Roussel’s Serenade Op. 30 and Jean Cras’ Quintet are works of similar character.

Both works written by Franz Liszt that we will hear this evening pay homage to Richard Wagner. The famous composer died in Venice, so the funeral procession was in gondolas. Hence the title – La lugubre gondola (French: funeral gondola). Am Grabe Richard Wagners (German: At the grave of Richard Wagner) is an epitaph of sorts – a brief, very slow work expressing Liszt’s grief following the loss of his father-in-law and friend.
