    The cover for Alfred Brendel’s recording of Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsodies combines a vivacious illustration of a folk dance with equally wild display typography. Weiss is paired with all-caps Crayonette and Saphir. The numbers of the included rhapsodies are set in yet another flamboyant face, Fontanesi. In sum, there’s too much going on. I feel the illustration could shine more with a less eclectic typography. While the cover art is by Frederic Marvin (1932–2013), the overall design is uncredited. It may have been provided by Vanguard’s art director, Jules Halfant.
