Liszt/Lajtha: Piano Trios

Gábor TAKÁCS-NAGY - piano
Dénes VÁRJON - piano
Péter SZABÓ - cello

"The sparky enthusiasm of the Takács Trio certainly whets the appetite to hear more of Lajtha. More, too, over and over again, of Liszt’s mischievous makeover of his own Hungarian Rhapsody in which the Takács Trio sound like an oversize one-man gypsy band, and of this intriguing and virtuoso metamorphosis of Tristia from a La vallee d’Obermann."
