"Franz Liszt and Richard Wagner stand at the center of European music in the nineteenth century. These two musical giants cast such broad shadows over their century that it is virtually impossible to discuss any aspect of Romantic music without making reference to one or both of them. ...It is rather surprising that, to date, their wind music has attracted little attention--an oversight this volume addresses." - Keith Kinder
