Kodaly composed the following piano piece based on recordings he made in the Marosszek area in Transylvania in the early 1900's, Muzsikas present some of the same melodies in their own arrangement of traditional folk music from the area in a tribute concert to Kodaly at the Liszt Academy in Budapest.

I saw a near-perfect Liszt recital in Budapest in Liszt's apartment during his 200th birthday weekend celebrations given by Hungarian pianist István Lantos. Five different works put together and played with complete mastery which sketched out in a musical drama the whole spiritual and emotional life of Liszt from the 1830's to his final years. From the rich and grand, life- and faith-affirming Invocation and Legend through his complicated grief over the death of Wagner in Venice, the nihilism and despair of Unstern to the ambiguous, nostalgic, wistful Valse Oubliee which doesn't end but rather evaporates. I recreate the recital here with several different pianists.
