Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kodály, Kurtág and Veress are three of the five great names of modern Hungarian music, alongside Bartók and Ligeti. And this recording provides a representative survey of their output, from the ''spiritual father'' Zoltán Kodály whose famous Sonata for solo cello reaches the highest level of liberty and inspiration, without ever repudiating its origins) to his more recent successors.

This title was released for the first time in 2001.
