Sardanapalo, who prefers wine and concubines to politics and warfare, and Mazeppa, who dies with glory, having endured pain and humiliation: dramatic literary models, impressively set to music by Franz Liszt. Written at the same time, these works represent Liszt's ideas striving to unite literature and music, on the one hand modernising Italian opera and on the other advancing towards the symphonic poem in his orchestral writing.

The Sardanapalo manuscript comprises the first act. For 170 years the material lay dormant in the Goethe and Schiller archive in Weimar: it was only in 2017 that David Trippett deciphered, edited and orchestrated the manuscript at the University of Cambridge.

Kirill Karabits conducts the Weimar Staatskapelle: Liszt's orchestra in the city in which he composed the opera. audite continues its series of the great Weimar Kapellmeister-composers.

A Quiet Beauty - Works by Kvandal - Tobiassen, Arnfinn (organ) / Johnson, Lina (soprano)

Denne utgivelsen er en hyllest til Johan Kvandals virke som både komponist og kirkemusiker. Til tross for sin suksess på andre musikalske områder, fortsatte han trofast å traktere orgelet i Vålerengen kirke (som den het den gang) fra 1959 og helt fram til 1974.

This release is a tribute to Johan Kvandal’s career as both composer and church musician. Despite his success in other musical arenas, he faithfully remained as organist of Vålerengen Church (as it was called then) from 1959 all the way up to 1974.
