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 czardas 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.

    Outstanding edition from Henle as always. The notation is incredibly clear and accurate. The fingering is also very helpful. The piece itself, being a Hungarian rhapsody, is mindblowing and almost technically impossible. The octaves at the end are the definition of frustration. I would recommend this to any technically proficient...
