Two standards of the Romantic repertoire for piano and orchestra are available here for the first time in a single volume: Liszt's symphonic poem Totentanz and his Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Tunes, a work of the same lyric grace and vital rhythms as his famous Hugarian Rhapsodies. The Romantic composers were fascinated with death and the Totentanz is Liszt's masterpiece of the macabre. Like most of the nationalistic music of its era, Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Tunes was not derived directly from native melodies but written in their spirit.
