Notes & Reviews:

The idea for this program occurred to Ferenc Vizi while working on Liszt's Rhapsodies. Liszt wrote in several places in the scores of the Rhapsodies, "quasi zimbalon," or "play like a cimbalom." This and the numerous sections inspired by traditional Hungarian music gave Vizi the idea to arrange some of the Rhapsodies for piano, cimbalom, and a Hungarian traditional music ensemble. The album includes Rhapsodies 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14: the Hungarian Fantasy. Ferenc Vizi's article in the booklet gives a fuller explanation of the program and quotes Liszt, who wrote extensively about gypsy music and his gypsy origins.
