Product Notes

Some people call Liszt's symphonic poems over-the-top; some say they're even vulgar. What is certain is that they're high octane, need to be played at high volume, and can stir the blood. Michael Halasz doesn't try too hard to impress/overwhelm the listener and, as a result, any subtleties in the music become clear. Small, inner melodies are stressed, but surely not to the detriment of the works' expansiveness. The big brass fanfares that begin Hunnenschlacht foretell the battle, in 451, between the Christian Emperor Theodoric and Attila; Liszt was inspired by a painting of the event. It's an exciting piece that incorporates a hymn and inspires Liszt the dramatist. Festklänge meanders for almost 20 minutes; there is a fine Polonaise two-thirds through. Ce qu'on entend sur la montagne ("What is Heard on the Mountain") is a half-hour piece that begins interestingly with a bass drum roll and contains some peaceful, bucolic passages but lacks great melodies. The performances are ideal. Turn up the volume! --Robert Levine
