Florian Zabach as a remote compositional influence perhaps
As a very young child, I developed an occasional penchant for Florian Zabach
Because of the Hungarian fiddle music.
Once in a great while, Florian made a televised appearance. Frank might not watch these with us, but he would laugh when my mother mentioned I had watched Florian on tv with my Grandmother, and my Grandmother would sigh, "Oh, Florian!" (because the little old bohunk ladies back East watched his show and were simply mad for him and she was making fun of them). Just like other little old ladies were mad for Liberace, but not so much his brother George, although even at that letters would pour in to Liberace criticizing him for not giving George enough air time. I'd say, well Liberace's the one with the fancy candelabra, what do they expect? Does Florian's initials remind you of any one?
