5.0 out of 5 stars This CD taught me to appreciate Liszt 5 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
I had to write a review of this CD purely to try and discredit the only other UK review, which is unfairly negative.
Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies are fantastic pieces of music, though they have taken me sometime to "get into". I bought this collection many years ago, and I must admit that except for the extremely famous 2nd Rhapsody, none of the the others really did it for me. Fast forward a few years, now a much more experienced and knowledgeable classical music listener I gave them another listen and was amazed. Since then I have become a Liszt fan, and am continuing to expand my Liszt collection all the time.
I think my previous failure to enjoy these pieces was probably due to impatience - the typical form of a Hungarian Rhapsody is slow-fast, and my youthful-self probably got bored of waiting for each piece to liven up... But the slow-fast form is marvellous, as the slow section almost hypnotises you into a trance-like state and then the fast section hits you and puts a huge smile on your face.
As for the performance, I think it is absolutely flawless. I have listened to other interpretations since and prefer this one by miles. The playing is clear and never rushed, and I have no idea what the other reviewer means by "he tries so hard to sound Hungarian" - I think this is a very silly thing to say.

I would recommend this CD not only to any lover of Liszt's music, but especially to anyone who is trying to learn to appreciate this great composer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid music making 24 Jun 2013
By J. Gibbons TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Roberto Szidon's recording of the complete Hungarian Rhapsodies dates from 1973 but remains the very finest in the catalogue. He was a very fine pianist who recorded far too little and this set is his greatest memorial. His approach is very different from that of more histrionic pianists like Cziffra. He plays the music 'as written' with perfect technical skill and the result is an eminently satisfying set.

I greatly enjoy other recordings of the Rhapsodies (or selections from them) by such as Bolet, Brendel and Pizzaro but these interpretations are better than any others I know and ideal for repeated listening. It might be paradoxical but the set as a whole is more exciting than more overtly virtuosic interpretations. These compositions have, for some, a low place amongst Liszt's piano works. Roberto Szidon makes the best possible case for them to be included amongst the finest of the mid nineteenth century.

The late analogue DG recording is very fine and the booklet notes very informative. A definitive issue and an essential purchase

5.0 out of 5 stars Roberto Szidon masterpiece. 18 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A truly excellent analogue recording of 1973 with consistency throughout all tracks. Roberto Szidon presents great virtuosity in every performance and is a true virtuoso. It is difficult to find another product to match.
