Hungarian Rhapsody No. 1 Piano Solo

Composer: Franz Liszt Editor: Peter Jost.

Liszt understood a “rhapsody” to signify the highest degree of musical freedom: a constant process of transformation and variation of themes and motifs, all bound up with constant shifts of emotion. According to one of its early reviewers, this first of Liszt's 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies is a prime example of “the art of thematic working such as no previous master has practised more fantastically, more expressively or more inventively.” Despite this, it was somewhat overshadowed by the greater popularity of the Second Hungarian Rhapsody (51480803), with its considerably pithier themes and rhythms; both were published in the same year, 1851. This Henle Urtext edition, which draws on all the available sources, now provides players with an opportunity to rediscover Liszt's First Rhapsody. Italian Liszt specialist Vincenzo Maltempo provides the fingerings.
