Zádor: The Plains of Hungary


Add To Wish List + $11.69 ($12.99) - Out of stock

In the last two decades of his career Eugene Zador, whose music fused Classicism with Romanticism to universal acclaim, wrote a series of works that reflected his Hungarian roots. Subtly flavored by folklore without any direct quotations, Zador’s facility for melody, harmony and color is exemplified in the ‘Rhapsody for Orchestra,’ while his gift for lyricism and pithy concision is to the fore in the ‘Fantasia Hungarica’ for double bass and orchestra. The ‘Rhapsody for Cimbalom and Orchestra’ reveals his ceaselessly inventive imagination in music that is orchestrated with the deftest touch. Five of these works are receiving, on this album, their world premiere recording. The Budapest Symphony Orchestra MAV was founded in 1945 by the Hungarian State Railways. Since then, it has developed a wide-ranging repertoire from music of the Baroque era to works by contemporary composers, and is currently ranked among the best professional ensembles in Hungary. The orchestra has performed throughout Europe as well as in Cyprus, Lebanon, China, Brazil, Peru, and many other countries throughout Europe, Asia, and South America.
