I just learned that Franz Liszt was a serial recomposer. Wikipedia calls them “treatments”, but I prefer recomposer. He recomposed the work of over 100 composers, with the most numerous being those of Franz Schubert. I’m a real fan of Schubert, and of Liszt’s piano music. Today’s piece is a short minute and a half that captures what Liszt was able to do with a wonderful example of Schubert’s Müllerlieder (also known as Die schöne Müllerin.) number 1, Das Wandern.
The tuning is taken from the overtone series of 16/9, including the following ratios:
They provide a perfect just triad 4:5:6/4 in Bb and F, which are the primary keys in this piece. And the F major includes a perfect 7:4, for that flatted 7th.
