    I've wanted the sheetmusic to Cziffra's Flight of the Bumblebee for years, ever since I came across Volodos' recording of it. I thought it was never notated (in fact, I think in the liner notes to the Volodos CD it states he transcribed it aurally from the Cziffra...

    recording). At any rate, someone did the notation for us, and it's a fantastic transcription, very creative, and surprisingly easy. The speed at which it should be played, of course, makes it difficult, but all the chords fit naturally under the fingers, and Cziffra's interlocking octave technique is really easier than it sounds. If you are familiar with the Volodos version, note that there are a couple minor differences (as this version matches the Cziffra recording). Highly recommended!
