This album is a collection of musical expressions of passion, pieces by Hungarian composers from the 19th century to the present day. Franz Liszt was actually an Austrian-German cosmopolitan, but in his art and deeds he clearly declared himself Hungarian. Les Préludes is casting the struggles of life and, in a Faustian sense, the conflicts of creative work into music. Ferenc Lehár’s life work is unquestionably connected to the peculiarly Austro-Hungarian musical genre of operetta. While the operettas and dances of the 19th century express and serve a real or desired feeling of life, the peculiarity of Lehár’s art is the clear connection it shows to the nostalgia that is typical of the 20th century. Ernő Dohnányi’s musical thought is typical of late Romanticism, preserving the tools of German Romanticism, at the same time delicately and seamlessly integrating folk music into his art. Dances of Galánta by Zoltán Kodály is an excellent example of how folk music and the current musical thought could connect to each other in the 20th century and how the works born of this interaction bear comparison with any Romantic symphonic poem. The 1st movement (Symphony No.1) of Levente Gyöngyösi depicts a happy love with all of its conflicts, fears, smaller and greater distresses and of course with the outbursts of joy.
