Cyprien Katsaris lädt die grosse japanische Pianistin Etsuko Hirose ein, ein neues Licht auf Ausschnitte der berühmtesten russischen Ballette zu werfen (für vier Hände und zwei Klaviere).
This programme of rare works on Russian and Hungarian themes exemplifies the philanthropic Liszt: most of these pieces are based on works or themes by his contemporaries and show Liszt taking the opportunity to add his name to theirs in order to increase their sales as well as to disseminate their work. Some of his friends in Russian and Hungarian society are featured, too, and if their innate art is pitched at rather an amateur level, Liszt soon transforms the ideas into something memorable.
This recital is underpinned by monumental transcriptions by Goedicke and Catoire whose pianistic complexities comprehensively interpret those areas of performance practice, notably tempo and rubato, which Bach left to the performer's instinct. At once audacious and characterful, these pillars of the genre are offset by delicate transcriptions by Alexander Siloti which serve as a fascinating and fastidious codification of the aristocratic pianism of the day.

The Tlingit language has been recorded in a number of orthographies over the two hundred years since European contact. The first transcriptions of Tlingit were done by Russian Orthodox ministers, hence they were in the Cyrillic alphabet. A hiatus in writing Tlingit occurred subsequent to the purchase of Alaska by the United States due to the policies implemented by Presbyterian reverend and territorial educational commissioner Sheldon Jackson, who believed that the use of indigenous languages should be suppressed in favor of English. American and German anthropologists began recording Tlingit in various linguistic transcriptions from the 1890s onward, and there exists a small body of literature and a large amount of vocabulary recorded in these transcriptions. With the work of two linguists from the Summer Institute of Linguistics, Gillian Story and Constance Naish, the first complete orthography for Tlingit began to spread in the 1960s.
