Unknown Hungarian(?) composer with lots of corrections by Liszt Ferenc (1811-1886): Fünf Rumänische Tänze, S129a

Trino Zurita - cello (arrangement), Antonio Simón - piano (Érard, 1884)

"At the Médiathèque Musicale Mahler, in Paris, there is an unpublished manuscript signed by Liszt in Weimar, in June 1875. It is mostly transcribed by the hand of a copyist, with numerous corrections and some passages of varying length interpolated by Liszt himself. Until a few years ago, the piece was listed among the Hungarian composer’s works for violin and piano. However, through study of the original clearly reveals a work composed for cello and piano. The piece is made up of five brief dances, folkloric in nature, which the leading specialists on Liszt’s work, Michael Short and Leslie Howard, have included in their monumental, and as yet unpublished, Thematic Catalogue as S129a. The first modern performance of this unpublished work was given by Trino Zurita and Antonio Simón at San Sebastian’s Quincena Musical in the summer of 2011.” (written by Antonio Simón and Trino Zurita)

Liszt Ferenc lived at the same address, on the first floor, between 1881-1886, while he stayed in Budapest. I’m sure he didn’t own a Citroën.

Liszt Ferenc at the piano with a young violinist.
'Her name was Anna Loretta Harkness or, as professionally known, Arma Senkrah’ Thank you, FrauLuther!
'She was 21 years old.  Senkrah and Liszt played Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata (and some of Liszt’s music transcribed for violin and piano) on July 20, 1885.' Wow I didn’t know that, look at my post just before this one…
