Via IAML-L & Musikbiblioteksforum:
after the publication of the complete work of Haendel in the Chrysander edition, the Munich Digitisation Centre at the Bavarian State Library has added another musical highlight to its digital collections: the works of Franz Liszt (1811 1886) in the so-called Carl Alexander edition (published 1907 1936). This edition has been initiated by the Franz Liszt society in Weimar and has not been finished. The 34 volumes were edited by some of Liszt's students (Eugen d'Albert, Ferruccio Busoni und José Vianna da Motta) and published by Breitkopf & Haertel. The edition has not been continued after 1936. Nevertheless, it contains the main part of Liszt's oeuvre and is until today the most complete edition of his musical works.
In addition to the volumes of the Carl Alexander edition, we present as supplement the two oratories "The Legend of St. Elizabeth" and "Christus" in their first printed editions.
Like many other digitised sheet music and digitised books on music from the holdings of the music department of the Bavarian State Library, the digitised Liszt edtion is also presented on the ViFaMusik web pages.
