Rapsodie hongroise II, S244/2bis
1885; alternative text

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The version of Rapsodie hongroise II contains all of the later additions to the work (made on three separate occasions) except the larger of the two cadenzas. These additions give a completely different atmosphere to the work; the added gypsy elaborations range from the weighty extension of the opening motif to the imitation of the cimbalom at the end of the first part, and the last three chords are replaced with a coda much more reminiscent of the style of the old Liszt.
