Format: Audio CD
Most people who are familiar with these pieces know them in the orchestral arrangements, none of which Brahms wrote. Most of the orchestrations performed today were done by Dvorák, and Brahms wrote these pieces for piano.

But he didn't compose them. In fact, the sheet music reads, "Hungarian Dances arranged by Johannes Brahms." Brahms enjoyed hiking, and many of his travels took him through Hungary, where he stopped at taverns where Gypsy musicians performed. He apparently enjoyed what he heard and arranged the music for piano. At the time, the gypsy musicians complained, but by that time Brahms was a wealthy man as was his publisher, Simrock, so there was no contest.

That's why you should purchase these recordings of arrangements by Joseph Joachim, Brahms's best friend (off-and-on). They get closer to the spirit of the original music. Joachim was the greatest violinist of his day, and these difficult arrangements for violin are a distinct improvement over the piano versions by Brahms.

This is also the finest recording available of the Joachim arrangements. If you doubt my opinion, go listen to the recording of the first Hungarian Dance on Sarah Chang's album Sweet Sorrow. There is no doubt that Sarah Chang is a fine violinist, but compared with Marat Bisengaliev, it sounds as though she's sight-reading the piece.

When I worked in a record shop, I sold 125 copies of this CD simply by playing it in the store. (Of course, being handsome and having a magnetic personality also helped my sales.)

I enjoyed this recording. The songs are played a little faster then the orchestra versions you typically hear. But that is the way they are written (if you read sheet music). I liked hearing the violin and piano together. I felt it created a more intimate sound and brought out the melody which is sometimes subdued by the many instruments of an orchesta. All the dances are here, plus some extra works. I great bargain for the price.

This is one of my all time favorite recordings - flawless technical command and compelling musicianship in a truly Hungarian style. The pacing and distinctive characters conveyed by the performers in these 21 dances are nothing short of genius. Marat Bisengaliev is one of the most expressive and original violinists I've heard, and he should be a household name to all who value great violin playing in service of the music.
