Descended from a family resident for generations
in the then Hungarian city of Pozsony (the modern Slovakian capital
Bratislava), Ferenc Erkel was a leading figure in Hungarian music
in a period of growing national fervour. This is evident in
his piano music, much of it written in the 1840s, testimony to
his own distinction as a pianist.
