    What is rhapsody?

    The word "rhapsody" in Greek means "epic song." At the beginning of the rhapsody occurs as a folk form (in ancient Greece), performed by the singer-rhapsodist. It is then modified to an individual creative work in the era of romanticism and up to the present day.


    What is rhapsody? In music, it refers to a vocal or instrumental work, which is written in a fairly free style, leaving room for improvisation. At first, rhapsody was based on folk song material. In the 19th century, under the influence of the aesthetics of romanticism, it undergoes certain changes, retaining an interest in folklore. “Hungarian Rhapsodies” by Liszt, the poem of Brahms, the rhapsody of Rachmaninov, the blues rhapsody of Gershwin are bright representatives of this genre at different times.
