Valse d'Adèle pour la main gauche seul par Géza Zichy 'Transcription brillant 2 mains par F. Liszt', S456
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Count Géza Zichy (1849–1924) was quite a successful opera composer in his day, and was further renowned for producing a large corpus of piano music for the left hand alone (as a boy he had lost his right arm whilst hunting) including a viciously difficult transcription of Schubert’s Erlkönig. His Valse d’Adèle is the third of a set of Six Studies of 1876 for the left hand (dedicated to Liszt, who had arranged for their publication) which Liszt expanded in every sense in a version for two hands. (Liszt’s only left-hand piece, Ungarns Gott, was written for Zichy.)
