Reviews

'As a guide to this cornucopia Leslie Howard could hardly be bettered' (BBC Music Magazine)

'All kinds of fascinating morsels … there is much here to interest any admirer of this remarkable and prolific composer' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Fascinating trouvailles' (Classic CD)
The Ländler, Dumka, and Air cosaque were all published in facsimile in 1960, and the manuscripts originally came from the library of the Countess Lyudmila Zamoyska (known to Lisztians as the original composer of Puszta-Wehmuth). Whether or how much the countess contributed to these little pieces cannot be easily determined, but their charm is incontrovertible. (The Liszt Society published the pieces in its 1997 Journal, computer-set.)

Les pièces Ländler, Dumka et Air cosaque furent toutes publiées en fac-similé en 1960; leurs manuscrits proviennent, à l’origine, de la bibliothèque de la comtesse Lyudmila Zamoyska (connue des lisztiens pour avoir composé Puszta-Wehmuth. Nous ne savons pas exactement dans quelle mesure la comtesse contribua à ces petites pièces – ni même si elle y contribua –, mais leur charme est indéniable. (La Liszt Society les publia dans son Journal de 1997, collection informatique.)

Français: Hypérion

Der Ländler, Dumka und Air cosaque sind alle 1960 als Faksimile veröffentlicht worden; ursprünglich entstammten die Manuskripte der Bibliothek der Gräfin Lyudmila Zamoyska (unter Lisztianern als ursprüngliche Komponistin von Puszta-Wehmuth bekannt). Ob und wieviel die Gräfin zu diesen kleinen Stücken beitrug, ist nicht leicht auszumachen, aber ihr Charme ist unbestreitbar. (Die Liszt Society veröffentlichte diese Werke 1997 in ihrem Journal im Computersatz).
