Franz Liszt was born in Raiding, Hungary, and gypsy music fascinated him from childhood. After studies, concert tours and romantic adventures abroad, Liszt returned to his native country in 1839 and was hailed as a champion of its national identity. This program presents Liszt’s original Hungarian Rhapsodies from the Magyar Dalok collection, introducing themes used in later volumes. The inspiration he found in gypsy music-making created virtuoso piano works that assimilate its melancholy drama and wild dances, imitating local rhythms and colorful instruments such as the cimbalom, and elaborating on melodies of the day in a refined and spectacular act of national storytelling.

This fabulous five disc set is replete with some of those old Stokowski warhorses all recorded in absolutely mind boggling Phase 4 sound, overblown perhaps but astounding for its time. Decca's remastering is absolutely magnificent and the discs are jam packed with almost six hours of music. This is another fine memorial to a great conductor who remained astonishingly vital until the very end of his life.

Already established as a tireless promoter of Czech music, Jakub Hrůša was the inaugural winner in 2015 of the Sir Charles Mackerras Prize for his advocacy of Janáček’s works, going on to receive ecstatic reviews in 2016 for Glyndebourne Opera’s production of The Cunning Little Vixen. One reviewer enthused that Hrůša “clearly has this music in his bones and blood … he asks for (and gets) an urgent, raw and abrasive quality, expressive of nothing less than the life force itself.” (The Telegraph, 13 June 2016).
