'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)

Valse de concert d'après la Suite en forme de valse de J. de Végh, S430

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Valse de concert based on the Suite en forme de valse for piano duet by János Végh (1845–1918; the vice-president to Liszt at the Academy of Music in Budapest from 1881) is one of the rarest of the published pieces of Liszt. Happily the Liszt Society has recently reprinted it from the present writer’s copy of the one and only edition which appeared briefly in Hungary in 1889. Although the thematic material is innocuous enough, Liszt turns it into the most attractive vehicle for the wistfulness of his old age, and the language has much in common with his late Valses oubliées.
