Home > Brass quintet > Liszt Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 (C minor - F)

The most famous of Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody’s or Rhapsodie Hongroise.

The trumpet part goes quite high towards the end, however according to my interent sources, they should be reachable. A piccolo trumpet could be used, where necessary, at the player’s decression.

There is a version of the arrangment a tone lower here : www.sibeliusmusic.com/cgi-bin/show_score.pl?scoreid=103486

As usual, I am not a brass player and any constructive comments regarding playbility issues would be most welcome.

In response to Ms Rowena’s review… Parts are readily available, please email me if you want a set.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
