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

Ungarns Gott, S543bis
1881; transcribed for the left hand

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The left hand version of Hungary’s God—a work whose root form is for voice, chorus and piano, and which also exists for piano, two hands—is Liszt’s only contribution to the literature for the left hand alone. It was arranged for his friend Count Géza Zichy—a formidable pianist, despite having lost his right arm, if his own left-handed version of Schubert’s Erl-King is anything to go by. (Liszt also arranged one of Zichy’s original works for left hand, Valse d’Adèle, for piano, two hands.)
