The Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna Romanova (1786–1859) was not only Franz Liszt’s patron, but also received musical instruction from him. At least one of her compositions, a song that will hereafter be referred to as the “Maria Pavlovna Lied,” was held dear enough by Liszt that he used its melody as thematic material not only as the main theme of hi...

"[...] Gerard Carter and Martin Adler’s painstaking examination of a reproducing-piano recording of the Sonata in B minor made by Arthur Friedheim between 1905 and 1907 is perhaps the most scientific and unquestionably the most serious study of any single Liszt performance [...] The very appearance of the Carter-Adler monograph also consolidates t...

Franz Liszt completed his Piano Sonata in B minor at Weimar in 1853. It met with a mixed reception from the musical establishment of the day but is now a part of the repertoire of every leading pianist and may even be the most frequently recorded and performed piano work ever written. It is the outstanding example of the compositional process of th...

Transacylation reactions of carboxylic acids, carboxylic acid esters, carboxylic acid amides and other carboxylic acid derivatives are among the most widespread and most important reactions in chemistry and biochemistry. Already in 1887, Claisen suggested a tetrahedral intermediate in transformations of carboxylic acid derivatives with nucleophiles...

Aufschlüsse über den Reaktionspfad der zu Benzophenon führenden 1,2-Eliminierung von LiNMe2 liefert die Kristallstrukturanalyse des tetraedrischen Adduktes [(Ph)2(NMe2)C(OLi)⋅THF]2 (siehe Ausschnitt aus der Struktur), das aus Benzoesäuredimethylamid und Phenyllithium erhalten wurde. Eine N1-Li1-Wechselwirkung, die nicht auftritt, würde den Verlust...

Information on the reaction path for the 1,2-eliminiation of LiNMe2 to form benzophenone is provided by the X-ray crystal structure analysis of the tetrahedral adduct [(Ph)2(NMe2)C(OLi)⋅THF]2 (a portion of the structure is shown schematically), which is prepared from N,N-dimethylbenzamide and phenyllithium. A N1−Li1 interaction, which is not observ...

Two new articles on Liszt featuring three topics: 1. The urgent need for a correct Urtext edition of the Sonata in B minor by Liszt; 2. Large-scale structures in the Sonata in B minor and the Faust Symphony; and 3. The first edition of a Lied by Maria Pavlovna (Romanova) prepared for publication by Franz Liszt himself
