Galop russe, S478ii

1844; second version

The first version of the Galop russe of Konstantin Bulhakov (1812–1862) has a very short introduction, and manages one extra statement of the theme and a stunningly off-course harmonic gesture in the coda. (The popularity of this piece at the time resulted in Liszt’s second version appearing within months of the first.)

La première version du Galop russe, de Konstantin Bulhakov (1812–1862), démarre sur une introduction très courte et réussit une formulation supplémentaire du thème, de même qu’un geste harmonique étonnamment décalé dans la coda. (A l’époque, la popularité de ce morceau se traduisit par la publication d’une seconde version de Liszt, quelques mois après la première.)

Die erste Version von Galop russe von Konstantin Bulhakow (1812–1862) kommt mit einer wesentlich kürzeren Einleitung zur Sache, mit einer zusätzlichen Themenvorstellung und einer verblüffenden harmonischen Geste in der Coda. (Die damalige Beliebtheit dieses Stückes bewirkte, daß Liszts zweite Version nur wenige Monate nach Veröffentlichung der ersten erschien.)
