4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely playing of Liszt,- fab example of superlative playing!
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars not good recording
Just received the Complete Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies and I am sorry to say, it is not a good CD. When playing it, the notes seems to jump. So i will have to return it and will have to choose something else as a replacement. If not, i wish to be reimbursed.
Thank you.

This review is from: Liszt: Complete Hungarian Rhapsodies (Audio CD)
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.!...

This review is from: Liszt: Complete Hungarian Rhapsodies (Audio CD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars --- Liszt Hungarian dances --, 29 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Liszt: Complete Hungarian Rhapsodies (Audio CD)
Liszt has been described is the greatest pianist the world has seen. It is not difficult to see why with his pyrotechnic displays on this album. The playing of Michele Campanella is excellent and does justice to the compositions. My favourite pieces are dances 2, 7 and 9 - but they are all very enjoyable. I have an acquaintance who is Hungarian and he was quite delighted by the lavish praise I heaped on his countryman!
