Liszt and Jazz


Franz Liszt was the greatest improvisator of his age: his audience was impressed with his improvisations on any theme - even with an aria from a popular opera or a Hungarian melody. His transcriptions and paraphrases are mostly notations of these improvisations. Today jazz is considered to be the main genre of improvisation, and as a tribute to the Liszt themes, Béla Szakcsi Lakatos performs them with jazz style elements to show that they are an inexhaustible source of improvisation.
