Mazurka brillante, S221


The Mazurka brillante is Liszt’s only original contribution to this genre, and its world is much more public than that of Chopin’s mazurkas. But it is an effective little concert piece whose Polish flavour is authentic enough.

from notes by Leslie Howard © 1994

La Mazurka brillante est la contribution la plus originale qu’ait fait Liszt à ce genre musical. Son univers est beaucoup plus proche de celui du public que les mazurkas de Chopin. Cette œuvre est néanmoins une petite pièce orchestrale saisissante dont les sonorités polonaises sonnent vraies.

Français: Béatrice Lesade

Die Mazurka brillante ist Liszts einziger Originalbeitrag zu diesem Genre und ihre Atmosphäre ist weniger intim als die der Mazurken Chopins. Aber sie ist ein wirkungsvolles kleines Konzertstück, dessen polnische Klangfarbe durchaus authentisch wirkt.
