Rhapsody Music Recordings

In music, a rhapsody is a single movement piece with no definite structure. In that sense rhapsodies can be considered similar to fantasias, as both types of pieces display features of improvised music. Rhapsodies, however, tend to be highly episodic pieces, often making extreme contrasts in terms of tonality and mood.
