Learn how to play Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt on piano with this Synthesia piano tutorial! Please enjoy!

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 in C-sharp minor is the second in a set of 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies by composer Franz Liszt, and is by far the most famous of the set. In both the original piano solo form and in the orchestrated version this composition has enjoyed widespread use in animated cartoons. Its themes have also served as the basis of several popular songs. The piece consists of two distinct sections. The first is the lassan, with its brief but dramatic introduction. Although beginning on the C-sharp major triad, C-sharp minor is soon established as the home key. From this point on, the composer modulates freely, particularly to the tonic major and the relative major. The mood of the lassan is generally dark and melancholic, although it contains some playful and capricious moments. The second section is the friska which opens quietly in the key of F-sharp minor, but on its dominant chord, C-sharp major, recalling a theme from the lassan. The alternating dominant and tonic harmonies quickly increase in volume, the tempo gaining momentum as the Friska’s main theme (in F-sharp major) is approached. This portion of the song is energetic and offers breathtaking challenges requiring skill few other than Liszt could offer. Enjoy this wonderful piano tutorial and impress all your friends with a very well known and well loved song!
