Mark Hambourg (1879-1960) plays Mendelssohn's "Auf Flügeln des Gesanges" (On Wings of Song), transcribed for piano by Franz Liszt. Recorded in 1927.
'Hambourg's earliest discs display a huge tone, brilliant fingerwork and fiery temperament; the 1909 Moszkowski etude is a splendid example. Ignaz Friedman once confessed to a cousin his jealousy over Hambourg: "Er macht besser!" [He does it better!] There is a resemblance between Friedman and Hambourg beyond the round dark-framed spectacles they wore as both caressed the piano and approached it in a sensual manner, singing out the themes against a tonally luxuriant background, a practice encouraged by Leschetizky.' (Allan Evans)
