Notes & Reviews:

Rhapsody is a collection of new works and arrangements by the world-class VIDA Guitar Quartet. The pieces are united by a loose programmatic theme of dance music as interpreted by different classical composers, covering the swing-band dance music of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," Malcolm Arnold's "English Dances," Gaelic folk-melodies in David Crittenden's "A Scottish Fantasy," and the Klezmer rhythms of traditional Yiddish communities.

Notes & Reviews:
