Song of the Month: August’s Rhapsody in C Major

Fun fact from The Harvard Concise Dictionary of Music and Musicians:

Rhapsody. … 2. In the 19th and 20th centuries, a title chiefly for instrumental pieces.  Borrowed from 18th-century literature, it implied no particular form, content, or compositional method.  The piano was the principal medium for the repertory until the last quarter of the 19th century.  See also Character (characteristic) piece.

I would say this piece has a lot of character, wouldn’t you?  🙂  Enjoy!

From the August Rush soundtrack, composed by Mark Mancina.
