Sept Variations brillantes sur un thème de Rossini from Ermione, S149 Op 2
circa 1824
Ah come nascondere la fiamma

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Opus 2 Variations take a theme from Rossini’s Ermione, the aria ‘Ah come nascondere la fiamma’, and treat it in the brilliant salon style of the day. Liszt’s personality has not really emerged, but his flexibility in piano writing and the neatness of his formal grasp make it an attractive enough showpiece.
