Thank you for having this available on Virtual Sheet Music! Incredible by Larry S. I first started composing about a year ago and I have learned many incredible techniques from this magnificent piece. Even in cartoons! Feeding dreams to children Woody was a piano fixer and a thief hide himself into the piano, and told Woody not to stop playing, otherwise he would kill him. What an amazing choice our hero could do! Since then, I have been trying to discover the name of the piece, and that's it!!!
I tought myself to play and read music at 5 years old No. 2 when I heard the Trans Siberian Orchestra play this I needed it in my mosted loved pieces! If you want to really enjoy this piece watch the Marx brothers! What a great piece!! One thing though, why do so many seasoned pianists insist on calling them songs?
As a background, No. 2, I am 18 and have been playing classical piano for 14 years. There are a few "ornamental" parts of the song that are quite hard to play to speed, and will take a lot of working on to become smooth. However, I love a challenge, and this song will keep me occupied for probably around Hungarian Rhapsody month, much longer than most songs.
Excellent piece, but only for advanced players. All those dynamics and speed are very marvelous. Questions or concerns? Interested in participating in the Publishing Partner Program? Let us know. Hungarian Rhapsody No. In the midth century, many European regions experienced a surge of national fervor and cultural pride.
Especially within the vast Austrian Empirevarious formerly suppressed ethnic groups began to exert themselves, and music was considered an ideal tool for expressing their cultural heritage. Born in Hungary of Hungarian heritage, Liszt spent most of his life abroad; although his grasp of the Hungarian language was highly limited, this did not prevent him from loving his native land.
On visits to Hungary in the s, he compiled a collection of folk melodies, drawn from both the Magyar and the Romany Gypsy traditions. The Hungarian Rhapsody No. Dotted rhythms of alternating short and long notes borrowed straight from Hungarian folk dances become prominent. These slow opening pages gradually lead to brisk and energetic ones, just as folk dances may pick up the pace with time.
These rapidly paced later pages sometimes have a light touch, but at other times they are all flash and fire. The mood of the lassan is generally dark and melancholic, although it contains some playful and capricious moments. The second section is the friska. It opens quietly in the key of F-sharp minorbut on its dominant chord, C-sharp major, recalling a theme from the lassan.
The alternating dominant and tonic harmonies quickly increase in volume, the tempo gaining momentum as the Friska's main theme in F-sharp major is approached.
At this point, the Friska begins its journey of ever-increasing energy and pianistic Hungarian Rhapsody, still underpinned by alternating tonic and dominant harmonies. Modulations are limited almost exclusively to the dominant C-sharp major and the lowered mediant A major.
Before the final whirlwind of sound, a moment of calm prevails in the key of F-sharp minor, recalling another of the lassan's themes, and is followed by the Hungarian Rhapsody, Cadenza ad lib. Finally, in the key of F-sharp majorthere is a crescendo of prestissimo octaves, which ascend and then descend to cover almost the entire range of the keyboard and bringing the Rhapsody to a conclusion.
Liszt planned his choice of keys in a remarkably symmetrical fashion. Although the lassan's principal key is C-sharp minor with the appropriate key signature used throughout the work opens on the tonic major chord, C-sharp major.
However, by bar 6, the minor tonality is established. This device provides a contrast which intensifies the generally dark and sombre character of the lassan. This procedure is directly reversed in the Friska. Although the principal key of the Friska is F-sharp major, Liszt chooses to begin in the tonic minor key, F-sharp minor, which is sustained until bar For practical reasons of notation i.
This time, the use of the more serious minor tonality is used as a contrast to the arrival of the playful and jubilant main theme of the Friska. InFranz Schreker made an orchestral transcription, the performance of which was originally intended to be filmed as part of a series entitled Das Weltkonzert.
