James Lisney’s …petits concerts take their title from the annual series of recitals given by Charles Alkan at the Erard Showroom in Paris during the 1870s.

Corie Stanton Root writes in allmusic.com: "Because of Franz Liszt's commanding position in the music world during the mid and late nineteenth century, he was able to mould and popularise the compositions of other composers that he felt were worthy. He had a particular affection for Schubert's music and this is reflected in his more than sixty transcriptions of Schubert's songs. Liszt played many of these works in his concert programs during his years as a travelling virtuoso.

"The works described here are from a collection of Schubert's songs appropriately entitled Schwanengesang (Swan Song) [D 957] which was assembled and published posthumously by Tobias Haslinger in 1829. Liszt's empathy for the moods of Schubert's work is evident in these transcriptions as is his brilliant compositional style."
