'More riches from the late piano repertoire of Franz Liszt, performed with skill and authority. Another excellent recording' (CDReview)

Puszta Wehmut – A puszta keserve, S246
composer
published 1885

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Puszta Wehmuth (‘Longing for the Steppes’) is apparently based on a work by the Countess Ludmilla Gizycka, née Zamoyska, although no mention is made of this in the original publication. Zamoyska’s work, in turn, is based on a poem by Lenau. The piece is a sort of miniature rhapsody with rather simple texture with the characteristic slow (Lassan) and fast (Friska) sections, and with a reprise of the opening flourishes at the end.
