What happens when a fictional child drops into the life of one of the world's great composers?
A dashing young musical superstar so adored that women faint when they meet him in the street, Franz
Liszt is restless. He knows that something is missing in his life as the world's greatest concert pianist. He meets Josy,
a gifted young Gypsy street musician, and subsequently wagers that he can turn Josy into a world-class musician. The bet turns
into a mighty struggle of wills - the worldly sophisticate against the resourceful Gypsy boy and a conflict of freedom vs.
discipline, heart vs. brain, passion vs. technique. Set in 1846, Liszt's Rhapsody celebrates the miracle of talent
and the triumph of dreams fulfilled.
