'I constantly admired his near orchestral range of sonority—his strength in grandiloquence and his hypnotic sustaining power in intimacy. Everything is played with total conviction' (Gramophone)

'A most enjoyable collection' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Muy interesantes, indispensables para lisztianos' (Ritmo, Spain)

Galop par Constantin Bulhakow arrangé par Liszt, S478i
1843/4; first version

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Galop russe: The music of Konstantin Bulhakov (1812– 1862) is hardly likely to reappear in the concert hall, but this gallop is a veritable hit which Liszt obviously enjoyed transcribing, since he issued two versions of it. The second has a new introduction and coda which seem to have some subliminal connection with Beethoven’s Turkish March from The Ruins of Athens.
