The work opens with a theme in a folksong character: an introduc-tion in minor. Timpani and the low winds symbolise the Hungarian character and the never-ending struggle of the people of Hungary. After this the theme re-appears in its full glory, but now in major. After a short transition a sparkling and rubato dance-theme follows, also alternatingly in minor and major. Another transitional section leads to a czardas for orchestra with much virtuoso passage work, characteristic for the virtuoso Franz Liszt. The work is concluded in a glorious manner by the main theme.
