Brian Wilson Download Roundup
MusicWeb International, April 2012

KODÁLY, Z.: Psalmus Hungaricus / Peacock Variations (LPO, Solti) (1954) 9.80303
KODÁLY, Z.: Peacock Variations / BARTOK, B.: Miraculous Mandarin Suite (Dorati) (1954) 9.80115

There are not too many recordings of Kodály’s Peacock Variations even now, so the Georg Solti recording with the LPO from 1954, coupled with an impassioned and powerful Psalmus Hungaricus (in English) is well worth having. (9.80303) Alternatively, there’s Antal Doráti’s Chicago SO version, also from 1954, this time coupled with Bartók’s Miraculous Mandarin Suite (9.80115). What an age of bargains we live in when these recordings can be had for a fraction of their original cost… Both recordings have worn well in these Naxos transcriptions. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
