'A bombshell selection that promises to hold the listener for hours on end. One almost imagines the fire of Liszt himself at the keyboard. Another jewel in Hyperion's legendary series.' (The Sunday Times)
The present version finds some quite different textures in its various treatments of Glinka’s splendid material, and Liszt’s coda (Glinka’s original does not have one) is another composition altogether in the later version (which was further recomposed when Liszt made his version for piano duet).

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1999

La présente version trouve, dans ses divers traitements du splendide matériau de Glinka, certaines textures fort différentes, cependant que la coda de Liszt (l’œuvre originale de Glinka n’en comporte pas) est une composition totalement nouvelle dans la version ultérieure (que Liszt recomposa ensuite dans le cadre de sa version pour duo pianistique).

Français: Hypérion

Bei der vorliegenden Version finden wir bei den diversen Behandlungen von Glinkas prächtigem Material recht andersartige Strukturen, und Liszts Koda (Glinkas Original besitzt keine) ist überhaupt eine ganz andere Komposition in der späteren Version (die noch weiter umkomponiert wurde, als Liszt seine Version für das Klavierduett anfertigte).
