'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)
Pásztor Lakodalmas ('The Pastor's Wedding') is a work of Count Leo Festetics, very much in the style of the pieces in Ungarischer Romanzero, with elaborations by Liszt. Apparently Liszt made some further changes to the piece post-publication, but the whereabouts of these is unknown, as is the extent of Liszt's involvement in the present version.

Pásztor Lakodalmus («Le mariage du pasteur») est une œuvre du comte Leo Festetics, dans un style fort proche de celui des pièces de l’Ungarischer Romanzero, avec des élaborations de Liszt. Manifestement, le compositeur apporta d’autres modifications à la postpublication de cette pièce, mais nous ignorons lesquelles – tout comme nous ignorons le degré de son implication dans la présente version.

Français: Hypérion

Pásztor Lakodalmas (Die Hochzeit des Pastors) ist ein Werk von Graf Leo Festetics, ganz im Stil der Stücke des Ungarischen Romanzero, mit Ausschmückungen von Liszt. Anscheinend fügte Liszt nach der Veröffentlichung weitere Änderungen hinzu, aber ihr Verbleib ist unbekannt, ebenso wie das Ausmaß von Liszts Beteiligung an der vorliegenden Version.
