About

The three works on these CDs present an interesting picture of Joachim Raff at opposite ends of his career. Two of the works come from the formative period when Raff was Franz Liszt's personal secretary and factotum, and include a composition (Prometheus Unbound) written by Liszt that Raff arranged and orchestrated for its initial performance. The music to Bernhard von Weimar was written in 1854, by which time Raff, then thirty-two years old, had long been an important member of the New German School, Liszt's closely-knit community based in Weimar.
