Reader Poll: Do you like classical music with jazz influences?

If there's no sheet music for this, then someone who has a good ear, PLEASE write out where he improvises and send it to me.

If you do that, I will form a religion around you.

It doesn't actually seem to me so fantastically different from the original. You could probably work it iout yourself with the score and a couple hours in front of YT.

Be a nice break from your Bach week.  Grin

 Cheesy Wheee!

Incidentally, if you like what Cziffra does to La Campanella, have a look at Busini's version (attached).

Thanks.  But since you don't have Cziffra's La Campanella, I won't worship you.
