Franz Liszt arranged numerous works by other composers for his instrument, in particular excerpts from the operas by his friend and son-in-law Richard Wagner. He turned to The Flying Dutchman
twice: alongside Senta’s ballad he also made a brilliant transposition of the spinning chorus ('Summ und brumm, du gutes Rädchen') from Act 2 for the piano. His Spinning Song
bubbles over with virtuosic brilliance and has to this day remained one of his best-loved transcriptions.
