About this Recording

ZADOR, E.: 5 Contrasts / Children's Symphony / Aria and Allegro / Hungarian Caprice (Budapest Symphony MAV, Smolij)

Eugene Zádor was a remarkable colourist and orchestrator whose Hollywood film work was extensive. He described himself as a ‘middle of the road extremist’. The Aria and Allegro is a beautifully crafted work brimming with rhythmic energy. Five Contrasts for Orchestra demonstrates his rich sound world at its most vibrant; film noir jostling with a big-booted country dance. The lighter A Children’s Symphony is one of his most popular pieces—communicative, witty, accessible. We also hear two small and captivating evocations of his native Hungary.
