Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The ECM debut of Ferenc Snétberger features the acclaimed Hungarian guitarist in solo performance before a rapt audience at the Liszt Academy in Budapest. Snétberger's richly improvisational eight-part suite - entitled "Budapest"- subtly draws upon influences from Brazilian music and flamenco, from jazz and classical tradition, as well as his own gypsy background. As an encore, he plays the Harold Arlen standard "Somewhere Over The Rainbow."
