Reviewing NEC’s “Salute to Franz Liszt.”
Boston Globe, February 1, 2010.

Sergey Schepkin sent a nice e-mail clarifying that the four-hand arrangement of the “Hungarian Rhapsody no. 2” was not Liszt’s own, as was listed in the program, but that of Liszt’s student Franz Bendel—to which Schepkin added additional ornaments and Hungarian-style scintillation. (Bendel, incidentally, performed at the famous 1872 “World’s Peace Jubilee” in Boston; two years later, while on another tour, he died in Boston after being stricken with typhoid fever.)
