Description: The first collection we've seen of music by Hungarian victims of the Holocaust, this release contains unusually lengthy and detailed notes about these six composers (more poorly translated than usual, but readable), all of whom followed the Bartók-Kódaly tradition (and who in Hungary didn't in the 20s and 30s?) although Justus' suite is plainly indebted to Stravinsky and, perhaps, to Weill. Vilmos Szabadi (violin), Péter Bársony (viola), Ditta Rohmann (cello), Márta Gulyás (piano), Emese Mali (second piano), Bernadett Wiedemann (mezzo).
