Even, consistent, revealing, and exhilarating playing of the Liszt rhapsodies,- more usually associated with mawkish melodrama and slapdash pyrotechnics. Clean legato playing sustains interest through the long expressive melodic lines while crisp technique overlays increasingly impossible embellishments. Meanwhile lesser themes casually meander through blissfully unaware. These multilayered, ever changing and evolving crescendi develope and tease until they cannot be halted any longer without a worthy finale,- and every one of them supplied with such skill as to appear almost casual- Almost!
This collection demonstrates not only excellent playing, performance, and reveals bits you never knew were there,- but a rare glimpse of ability So good that the piano is not just an Instrument, but a Toy to be played With, In any way, according to the whim of the performer.!...

By Dr R TOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Oct. 2014
Format: Audio CD
The strength of this 2 CD set lies in the word ‘Complete’. Michele Campanella, b. 1947, recorded these works in 1971-73 so it is a young man’s cycle. Individual works were recorded in The Netherlands in two separate sessions and in Switzerland [5, 18] and, from these, the recording engineers have created a seamless cycle. The Philips transfer is bright and forthright.

The point has been made that most of these works are relatively unknown, some [nos 1, 9 and 14] exceeding 12 minutes in length. Liszt originally composed most of them in 1840, 1843 and 1847, after which they were revised and republished in 1851 and 1853. The final four works, nos 16-19, are from the very end of his life, 1882-86. This, and other interesting information, is included in the [culinary-sounding] text ‘Melodic Piquancy and Rhythmic Zest – Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies’ by Max Harrison.

Artur Pizarro, b. 1968, and Leslie Howard, b. 1948, have also recorded all the Hungarian Rhapsodies, the latter within his phenomenal survey of the composer’s complete piano music. Perhaps the most famous recorded selection is by Georges Cziffra, 1921-94, who is certainly more in the Liszt mould of a coruscating virtuoso that Campanella, and who did much to popularize these works on prime-time BBC television in the 1950s. Cziffra’s performance was high risk, very different to the present controlled approach, with a number of wrong notes but one suspects that this might have been the case with Liszt himself.

The collection of the Hungarian Rhapsodies on two CDs, tts 75.04 (1-9) and 69.50 (10-19), is very attractive, the set being very well recorded and Campanella’s fingerwork is meticulous and shows subtlety and finesse.

It's only a few, usually cherry-picked, of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies that are heard on the radio, so it's good that all nineteen of them are featured on this competitively-priced double CD by Decca. Michele Campanella makes a very fine job of playing the pieces and my principal reason for purchasing the CD was to hear Rhapsody No. 6, a favourite of mine since hearing Dirk Bogarde playing it (almost!) in his ill-fated portrayal of Franz Liszt in an even more hapless film, `Song Without End'. Avoid the film if you like, but don't miss this impressive CD.

OK for a very inexpensive collection of Liszt. There are better recordings but this is middle of the road acceptable without sparkling
