The piano version of this work is one of my favourite Liszt pieces, yet it's also very little known (I think Howard has the only recording). Liszt at his most profound. Anyone else familiar with this piece? Any thoughts?

The last of his three funeral odes, it was written at the time of his two Legends, the Faust Episodes, and the Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen variations. To me, it, along with the second ode (la notte), and the orchestra/choir/narrator version of the first, Les Morts, are worthy of such company.
