Années de pèlerinage II, S.161 'Italie' is a piano suite composed by Franz Liszt during the mid-1830s and later revised in the 1850s. Translating to "Years of Pilgrimage II: Italy," this collection reflects Liszt's experiences and impressions during his travels across Italy. The suite is divided into four distinct pieces, each capturing the essence of different Italian locales.
Sposalizio (Marriage): Inspired by Raphael's painting "The Marriage of the Virgin," this piece exudes a sense of solemnity and grandeur, depicting a sacred union.
Il penseroso (The Thoughtful One): Liszt draws inspiration from Michelangelo's sculptures, particularly "The Thinker." This composition reflects a contemplative mood, exploring the introspective aspects of the artistic process.
Canzonetta del Salvator Rosa (Song of Salvator Rosa): Named after the Baroque painter and poet Salvator Rosa, this piece is vibrant and lively, capturing the spirit of Italian folk music and festivities.
Sonetto 47 del Petrarca (Sonnet 47 of Petrarch): Liszt's romanticism shines through in this piece, based on a sonnet by the Italian poet Petrarch. The music beautifully reflects the emotional depth and passion expressed in the poetic verses.
"Annees de pelerinage II: Italie" showcases Liszt's ability to translate visual and literary inspirations into evocative musical compositions, offering listeners a captivating journey through the rich cultural tapestry of Italy.
This recording was recorded at New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall, 2002 during a live concert.
