Rhapsodies hébraiques free form original compositions for the solo piano based on jewish themes

The composer adopts here an expanded tonal language and models his renditions of the traditional Jewish melodies on the Hungarian Rhapsodies by Franz Liszt.

The themes featured in this series are laden with centuries of passion, love, hope and despair.

In both spirit and pianistic elaboration, even for the wording of the title, Hebraic Rhapsodies reflect on the Hungarian Rhapsodies by Franz Liszt.
