'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 alternative passages in the versions of Rapsodie hongroise X are to do with the replacement of difficult glissandi with other material. But the effect is not simply that of facilitation; the ossia texts also offer real musical changes.

Les passages alternatifs de la version de la Rapsodie hongroise X enregistrée ici voient les difficiles glissandi remplacés par un autre matériau. Ce qui ne se traduit pas par une simple facilitation; les textes ossia offrent également de réels changements musicaux.

Français: Hypérion

Die Alternativpassagen in den Fassungen der Rapsodie hongroise X und Rapsodie hongroise XV haben mit dem Austausch schwieriger Glissandi durch anderes Material zu tun. Aber der Effekt ist nicht nur der schlichter Vereinfachung, die als ossia hinzugefügten Passagen bieten zusätzlich echte musikalische Veränderungen.
