Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Hungarian Dances are eminently diffi cult works originally written for two hands. The composer later transcribed them for four to facilitate playing. Here, the original - diffi cult - version of these pieces is presented, overfl owing with the spirit of Gypsy music, and showing prodiguous harmonic wealth. Great piano music performed by a wonderful artist. The Hungarian Dances are eminently diffi cult works originally written for two hands.
