Fantasie sur l'opéra hongroise Szép Ilonka de Mihály Mosonyi, S417
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Liszt’s passionate desire for a Hungarian musical culture to be proudly exported is a refrain throughout h is correspondence, and his support for Hungarian musical education and many Hungarian composers is legion. He was delighted when Mosonyi produced the first of his works specifically entitled ‘Hungarian Opera’, and this colourful piece on themes from Pretty Helen is the resultant tribute to a composer whose neglect outside Hungary has nevertheless endured.
