Two Liszt Rhapsodies and a March
These pieces 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. 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.
