Liszt: The Piano Concertos; Dohnanyi: Variations on a Nursery Song

Genre: Classical; Lead Performers: Ivan Fischer, Zoltan Kocsis; Producer (group): Philips

So what if Liszt spent most of his life in France and Germany and never learned to speak Hungarian? The music of the Magyars’ fiery favorite son played by a hot-blooded local boy is an irresistible combination. Even the delightful Dohnanyi filler (variations on ”Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”) doesn’t really douse the flames. Put it in the CD player and let ‘er rip! Just be sure to remove all flammable vestments first.
