Description
Brahms's Hungarian Dances (Ungarische Tänze) are a set of 21 lively and rhythmically free dance tunes based mostly on Hungarian folk themes. He originally wrote a version for piano four-hands and later arranged the first ten dances for solo piano, which are heard in this 1982 recording. Based on a theme from Handel's Harpsichord Suite No. 1 and probably written for Clara Schumann, Brahms's Variations and Fugue have been ranked by music critic Donald Tovey as being among "the half-dozen greatest sets of variations ever written." Brahms biographer Jan Swafford describes them as "perhaps the finest set of piano variations since Beethoven … a work of massive scope and dazzling variety." André Gorog was given a Diapason 5 award for this recording, and he captures both their poetry and their expressiveness.
