Notes and Editorial Reviews

The music of amateur composer Imre Szechenyi is only just being fully explored, more than a century after his death. Count Imre Szechenyi of Sarvar-Felsovidek was a Hungarian nobleman and landowner, and Austro-Hungarian diplomat and politician. He was Austrian ambassador in Berlin during the government of Bismarck. He signed for the Austrian emperor Bismarck’s Alliance of the Three Emperors in 1873. Szechenyi was only a composer in his private life, although his pieces were quite cultivated. A collection of his Lieder was released earlier this year, and now the Budapest Symphony Orchestra MAV presents his complete dances for orchestra in their world premiere recordings.
