2014 Around Dvořák Disc 8

Alongside Dvořák and his countrymen, who were fueled by their interest in Czech folk traditions, the composers of nearby Hungary likewise mined the richness of their own musical heritage. Disc VIII explores their aim of developing a distinctively Hungarian musical identity. Continuing Bartók’s development of Hungarian music, Dohnányi wedded the late Romantic tradition with his own singular voice while György Ligeti, one of the twentieth century’s most inventive enfants terribles, extended the legacy of Hungarian music with a daringly modern flair.
