Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Those familiar with the Sixth Hungarian Rhapsody will have no difficulty in recognising the materials of the three Ungarische Nationalmelodien. In fact, much of the content of these three pieces had appeared already in the collection Magyar Dalok—the first part of Liszt’s first cycle of pieces based on Hungarian and gypsy music—in No 5 (to which Liszt added a short introduction and a coda), No 4 (which was reprinted unchanged) and the second part of No 11 (with a new Prélude and a coda, neither of which recurs in the Sixth Rhapsody).
