'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)

Virag dál 'Chant des fleurs', S383a

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
As the great Hungarian Liszt scholar Dr Mária Eckhardt has pointed out, Liszt’s work on the Virag dál—Chant des fleurs (Flower Song) of Kornél Ábrányi Sr. (1822– 1903) is not really that of transcription, but of elaboration. Ábrányi’s original is a song, and he himself transcribed it for piano. Liszt made numerous small alterations to the transcription, and added a certain amount of new material, particularly at the end of the central section.
