Description: World premiere recording of the 1929 Rhapsody, a 15-minute work which already has the film-score sound of the mature Rózsa all over it. Like the Rhapsody, the other works are an instantly recognizable mixture of Hungarian folk style, Technicolor, Widescreen orchestration and a film-music quality which is hard to pin down but immediately recognizable. Does Rózsa's concert music sound like film music because we know his film scores so well? Or is he just a brilliant communicator of a wonderfully colorful ethnic music heritage? This is the only available version of the 1957 overture, whose sense of struggle and angst plainly refer to the Hungarian uprising the previous year. Mark Kosower (cello), Budapest Symphony Orchestra MÁV; Mariusz Smolij.
