Hungarian Rhapsodies 1-3,6 - Liszt / Czardas from "Ritter Pasman" - Johann Strauss II - M-2189

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Hungarian composer, Ferenc Liszt, was greatly impressed by the charm of the gypsy bands, in his native country in the 1840s, playing their cultural music, and it was primarily this influence, that led him to compose ten albums-worth of national melodies, arranged for piano solo ... The thirty-two pieces included in these collections, provided the composer, with the material for his celebrated "Hungarian Rhapsodies", and it was these works, which cemented his international reputation, as a brilliant writer of music.

Although the Rhapsodies have no formal structure, most of them are more or less loosely divided into two sections - beginning with a slow movement called a "Lassan" or "Lassu", and concluding with a rapid "Friska". The typical Liszt Rhapsody is, therefore, an extension of the czardas, the idea and style of which is adapted to the keyboard technique of one of the greatest pianists that ever lived.

The orchestra, on these recordings, is the Vienna State Opera Orchestra, conducted by Hans Swarkowsky.

Side One : Hungarian Rhapsodies, by Liszt :-
1) Rhapsody No.2 2) Rhapsody No.6

Side Two : Hungarian Rhapsodies (continued...) :-
1) Rhapsody No.1 2) Rahpsody No.3

Johann Strauss II first came into contact with Hungary, during a concert tour in 1846, when his "Pesth Czardas" aroused much enthusiasm, in the capital, Budapest. Indeed, the czardas play an important role in the second act of "Die Fledermaus", Strauss' most famous opera. And, Johann duly followed this up, in his opera, "The Gypsy Baron", an example of a great alliance between Viennese and gypsy music.

"Ritter Pasman" was Johann Strauss' II only real attempt at grand opera, and is largely made up of material, heavily influenced by the Hungarian style ...

Side Two : 3) Czardas from "Ritter Pasman", by Johann Strauss II
