It was premièred at the Circle Theatre in Chicago on April 11, 1993 with the Composer as Faust and Kevin Hinton, pianist.

Musik Fabrik is pleased to announce the publication of an album of songs for bass voice and piano by Franz Liszt. This edition of songs by Franz Liszt (1811–1886) includes all of the scores recorded by bass Jared Schwartz and pianist Mary Dibbern for the CD Franz Liszt: Songs for Bass Voice and Piano, Toccata Classics 0441, released October 2017 and recently named “BEST LIEDER RECORDINGS OF 2017“ by La Voix Des Arts. This is the first CD of songs by the composer with a selection for bass voice with all but one song transposed to fit the low-voice range. A complete version of the following excerpted notes, along with the translations of the poems into English, is included in the CD booklet. The album is divided into two volumes: Vol. 1: songs in German and Vol. 2 : songs in Italien, English and French.

The selections in this edition and on the CD are the first recorded performances of any of his voice-piano music by a bass voice, and all but one are transpositions to low-voice keys. The songs represent four of the six languages that Liszt set: German (7), French (3), Italian (1), and English (1). They are also examples of the stylistic and dramatic variety of three distinct periods that musicologists often use to describe Liszt’s musical production. The performers chose three songs from the Early Period (1838–1847) that includes the years of his rising fame as a piano virtuoso; five from the Weimar Period (1848–1858), when he abruptly left the concert stage to accept the post of Kappelmeister in the Weimar court; and finally, four from the Last Period (1870–1886), which began after Liszt left Weimar and took minor orders in the Catholic church. Throughout his career, Liszt wrote complex vocal music with a two-octave ambitus and dynamics ranging from the most delicate ppp to a roaring ff. His songs transformed the previously limited vocal tessaturas and range of dynamics found in the music of his contemporaries’ 19th-century chamber music salons.

The centerpiece of both the song sollection and the CD recording is Le Juif errant (“The Wandering Jew”) (S.300), poem by Pierre-Jean de Béranger (1780–1857), which was Liszt’s last song before his 1848 move to Weimar. The accompaniment is derived from his piano solo of 1840, the étude de perfectionnement (S.142). Its musical material also appears in the later (1852) piano solo Ab irato—étude de perfectionnement de la Méthode des Méthodes (S.143). The seperate edition for Bass-baritone is in the original key of e minor. These are all available in our art song catalog


Gian Paolo Chiti wrote his newly publisehd work “Play on B.A.C.H.” for the Moreno Gistain Duo, who premièred the work on the 28th February, 2015, for the concert season of the Fundación Juan March in Madrid. It was also recorded for Spanish National Radio. Juan Fernando Moreno Gistain wrote of the work: “It´s an honour for us that Maestro Chiti composed “Play on B.A.C.H.” for our concert programme dedicated to works based on the motif formed by the notes B.A.C.H. “Play on BACH” is a wonderful piece for piano duo and we are sure many duos will perform this in the future. The work has an amazing feeling of nostalgia, humour and charm; the audience loved it at every performance. It´s a masterwork and fits incredibly well in our concert programme.”


Musik Fabrik is happy to annouce an important series of publications of songs by the French composer Ange Flégier. This project originated with the recording "Ange Flégier: Mélodies for Bass Voice and Piano" with American bass Jared Schwartz and pianist Mary Dibbern. They located out-of-print scores of songs especially suited to bass voice and then collaborated with us for the editing process. A number of Flégier’s songs in medium and low keys will be available shortly, in addition to a volume of songs for bass voice that corresponds to the recording. Those titles are listed below. The recording was released in September 2016 by Toccata Classics (London).
