'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)

Bevezetés és magyar induló 'Introduction and Hungarian March', S573

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Count Imre Széchényi (1825–1898) is himself the dedicatee of Liszt’s transcription of his Bevezetés és magyar induló (Introduction and Hungarian March), almost as if Liszt wanted to cover himself in advance for taking many liberties with the original. In fact the piece becomes all but an original Hungarian Rhapsody, and resembles very closely the four late Rhapsodies—numbers 16 to 19—and especially the last, which is actually based on music by Kornél Ábrányi. Here, as in all the later Hungarian publications, Liszt insisted that his Christian name was given only in Hungarian.
