Description: A pendant to the Moyzes symphony cycle, these sets of orchestral music explore the landscapes and national folk identity of his native country. Down the River Váh is colorful and vivid, charting a journey from the Tatra mountains passing flowery meadows, imposing castles and surging waters. The companion pieces are characteristic national works epitomizing Slovakia’s fertile folkloric traditions. Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Ondrej Lenárd. Original 1989 Marco Polo release.
