Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody No.2

We have begun with numbers 2 and 6: in the coming years we will be producing editions of all of Franz Liszt#s #Hungarian Rhapsodies#, brilliant pianistic excesses and a favourite with all virtuosos. Hungarian folk music was a source of inspiration for Liszt throughout his life. The best known example is the #Rhapsodies Hongroises# for Piano, which made the characteristic syncopated rhythms of the #puszta# melodies and the fiery temperament of the #csárdás#, famous throughout the world. The popularity of these very demanding showpieces for the Piano is shown by the countless arrangements which even include transcriptions for Orchestra.
