Ida Carenvali in Liszt's Rhapsody

Liszt's Rhapsody

1996 NR

Home Box Office's enjoyably educational Composers Specials series profiles the legendary Franz Liszt (played by Geordie Johnson) in another laudable effort to teach young devotees of classical music about the genre and the artists who made their mark in it. Tired and uninspired, the pianist taps into his well of creativity when he befriends a genius violinist. Includes performances of Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2" and "The Mephisto Waltz."
