Hungarian, Op. 39, No. 12
By Edward MacDowell / ed. Lynn Freeman Olson
Alfred Masterwork Edition
For the more advanced student, this will make an exciting recital piece, much like the "Hungarian" works of Liszt and Brahms. It is to be played "Presto con fuoco," and there is a definite dance feel to the work, complete with indications of marcato, and marcatissimo. There are many running scales in sixteenth notes, a wide use of the keyboard, excursions into neighboring tonalities, running octaves, and large block chords.
