Carrousel de Madame P-N, S214a
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
While a sense of humour is apparent in a good deal of Liszt’s music, at least within the bounds of scherzando, and often with a Mephistophelean edge, actual joking in his music is pretty well absent, save the one piece inspired by the sight of the corpulent Madame Pelet-Narbonne taking her pleasure in a ride on a roundabout. It must be admitted that Liszt’s view of the incident is less than kind—with the marking ‘Allegro intrepido’, and sounding not far away from the spirit of Bartók’s Allegro barbaro.
