Catalogue Number: 03U002
Description: From the 1944 Concerto to the Hunyady László from 1981/82, this is another valuable step in the resurrection of a composer whose reluctance to march shoulder-to-shoulder with the post-war European avant-garde led to his eclipse for much of his career. Only the Mahlerian Nachtstück (1960) is otherwise available on disc while the rhythms and energy of the two earliest pieces may put you in mind of Bartók or Stravinsky. RSO Berlin; Johannes Kalitzke.
