Berlin - Wien: Schlesinger-Haslinger, [Ca. 1875]. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Score of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody no. 12 ("A J. Joachim"), with the ownership stamp of the important twentieth-century German pianist Elly Ney, who has also penned "12. Ungarische Rhapsodie" in blue ink at the head. A few paper repair within, edges lightly nicked with small tears, spine reinforced with green cloth, overall very good. There are no markings within the score.Â Elly Ney was one of the 20th century's outstanding pianists and at 16, won the Mendelssohn prize (1900)âin a contest of which the famous Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim, was one of the judges. Â The present work by Liszt is dedicated to Joachim.Â Of Ney's great performing, Willhelm Kempff wrote: "My ears still hear her melodious voice, with its unmistakable hint of her Rhineland origins, which had the gift of establishing immediate contact with everyone she spoke to. This happened even more intensely when she stepped onto the concert platform. Just one mysterious chord (Beethoven's D minor sonata, for instance), and the listener was drawn into her magnetic field. What then ensued cannot and should not be described in words, nor should it be scientifically dissected. Those who had ears, heard for themselves. But that was by no means the end of the matter. A realisation continued to resonate in her listeners' hearts, as it had begun to resonate from the moment this greatest of performers stepped onto the platform - the realisation that artistry of this quality draws its strength from roots that have their being in the unfathomable depths of the human soul."
