Franz Liszt's and Richard Wagner's works for wind instruments and wind ensembles of various kinds, as well as for winds and voices in various combinations, epitomize much of nineteenth-century musical romanticism. From ceremonial and religious works to compositions for court occasions, from the concert hall to the operatic stage, Wagner's and Liszt's wind and wind-voice music offers insights into each composer's stylistic evolution as well as the emergence of the symphonic poem and music-drama as genres in their own right.
