LEÓ WEINER (1885-1960): Complete Works for Orchestra, Vol. 2 - Toldi.
Catalogue Number: 05U002
Description: A 1952 tone poem lasting 65 minutes, Toldi is inspired by a Hungarian epic poem whose twelve sections are mirrored in Weiner’s music (four more sections were added in 1957 and were included in a 2008 Hungaroton recording now available only as a download) which is resolutely Romantic in style with nothing more modern than what you might hear in Kodály or Viteszlav Novák. If you liked the first volume in this series (the ballet Csongor es Tünde - 02R005), you’ll want this also.
