Liszt Rhapsody, The
From Plank Road Publishingadapted/arr. Karl Hitzemann
The introduction of "The Liszt Rhapsody" hints at several of Liszt's famous works (as noted on the piano/vocal score), and the lyrics, set to another of his well-known pieces, give brief facts and details about his life. It's a great way to launch a unit on Liszt, and/or music from the Romantic period. Classroom teachers might also be interested in music like this when discussing various aspects of the 19th century.
The accompaniment for this song is written for piano and strings. It features adapted and slightly simplified versions of his original works. You can use the instrumental track, or, if you have a pianist who is able to play the accompaniment, it would make for a very exciting "live" performance. (from Music K-8, Vol. 22, No. 1)
