This seems to be from the same recital. The composition, which is a very late work that dates from January 11, 1985, is untitled. "Slow, Heavy, Maestoso" is the initial tempo/performance designation.

I've been aware of Mr Ordonez's playing for sometime, via youtube. I like him in darker Liszt; I'm sure he had a good Nuages Gris uploaded years ago. I expected he would be a good advocate for Nyiregyhazi and wasn't disappointed, though I do have doubts that the piece is of especial importance.

The piece is devoid of interest to my ears.
