Catalogue Number: 11L082
Reference: HCD 31189
Description: After offering the newest Sugár release in September, we received requests for this 1996 title, now no longer distributed in the U.S. The 1962 tribute to Bartók is its main work, a 32-minute, six-movement piece which totally assimilates Bartók's mature style with Sugár's own. The Sinfonia (1970) and Epilogue (1973) use even larger orchestral formations (the Concerto does without brass) to produce even more rich orchestral colors and demonstrate Sugár's ability to assimilate aspects of dodecaphony in an otherwise tonal matrix. Budapest Symphony Orchestra; András Ligeti. 1996 release.
