, originally Liszt Ferencz in Hungarian, (1811-1886) studied composition with Antonio Salieri with
influence from Berlioz and Paganini. He wrote “Les Preludes” in Weimar in 1847 based on themes from an earlier choral
composition. It is a tone poem with the program of describing life as a series of musical preludes.

(1883-1962) was born in Connecticut and studied at Yale with Horatio Parker and in Paris with
Guilmant and Widor. His transcription of this well-loved symphonic work calls for the resources of a large orchestral organ and
was written during the year of the dedication of the V/150 E M Skinner (1922) in the Cleveland Public Auditorium where he served
as municipal organist. Difficult.
Compare with the Grasse transcription.
