FRanz LiszT

Percussion arrangements

This selection of works by Liszt have been  sympathetically remixed on new world  percussion instruments and synthesizers to  crisp, sparkling effect in different ways to bring  out the dynamic qualities of this music.   Piano Concerto No1 recorded on a  combination of Steel Drums, Gamelan and  Marimba for the Piano part and Ocarina, Pan  Flute, Vibraphone and more Steel Drums for the  orchestra. The original MIDI file on which this  recording is based is of exceptionally good  quality and this comes through in this  arrangement. The  Trancendental Etude No 10 is arranged  on our now familiar Steel Drum, Gamelan and  Marimba representation of the piano across a  wider stereo image. Liszt’s piano transcription of the Rossini William  Tell Overture builds up to the passages familiar to television viewers of a certain age. The piano  transcription is re-distributed over Steel Drums,  Vibraphone, Marimba and Gamelan to exciting  effect. La Campanella is a smaller work but responds  well too.

Two Rhapsodies and the

Rakoczy March

Liszt published 19 Hungarian Rhapsodies and we  are presenting 3 three of them here. The musical  form which Liszt adopted for these Rhapsodies is  one that had been preserved and promoted by  the Gypsy musicians of his home land - Hungary  and there are several strong Gypsy themes  evident in the pieces we have selected. They were composed for the piano where Liszt  demonstrated his extraordinary virtuosity and it  may seem like sacrilege to some that we have  had the audacity to use synthesizers to render  them for these MP3 recordings. For Liszt's Rhapsody No 2 steel drums were  contrasted with Mega Moog and augmented with  a Flying Sine synthesizer and Vibraphone.  For Rhapsody No 12 we just used steel drums,  Vibraphone and Flying Sine.  For Rhapsody No 15 (Rakoczy March) in A  minor a Celtic harp partnered the steel drums  and gave some extraordinary effects in the low  registers.
