Liszt transformed the whole concept of the concerto when he cast his A-major concerto in one single movement using the idea of thematic transformation. A poetical masterpiece, both serene and glitteringly exciting, which stands at the very pinnacle of Romantic piano literature. Liszt used his own Hungarian Rhapsody No. 14 as the basis for the Hungarian Fantasia, the second piece featured on this MMO release. With its triumphal themes, sparkling cadenzas, and breathtaking finale, this single-movement mini-concerto is a sparkling musical gem! A wonderful, eminently accessible piece due to its relatively short length. Includes a high-quality printed music score and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.

    Only major complaint is the erratic tempo of the soloist which in turn affects the orchestra when you practice with them. I think some editing has been done to the score as well; some sections do not sound like the original. It would be nice if MMO would re-release...

    this (zimerman haha) so it can function as a better 'learning tool'. This however would no discourage me from future MMO purchases.
