'A bombshell selection that promises to hold the listener for hours on end. One almost imagines the fire of Liszt himself at the keyboard. Another jewel in Hyperion's legendary series.' (The Sunday Times)

Marche des Tcherkesses de l'opéra "Rouslan et Loudmila" de M. I. Glinka, S406i
1843; first version
1837/42; Ruslan i Lyudmila

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The present version finds some quite different textures in its various treatments of Glinka’s splendid material, and Liszt’s coda (Glinka’s original does not have one) is another composition altogether in the later version (which was further recomposed when Liszt made his version for piano duet).
