Description: In Hungary at the beginning of the 20th century, Bartók and Kodaly were collecting and making analytical studies of Hungarian folk music, creating a new interest in the native music of their homeland. This album, featuring rarely heard works from the succeeding generation of Hungarian composers, presents a distinctive portrait of the Hungarian music scene from the interwar years to the 1950s, by composers who faced discrimination or, in the case of Weiner, paid the ultimate price for their Jewish heritage. Offenburg String Trio.
