About this Recording

LAJTHA, L.: Orchestral Works, Vol. 4 (Pécs Symphony, Pasquet)

Lázsló Lajtha was one of the most significant Hungarian composers of the 20th century, yet his international recognition suffered under Communist suppression and his remarkable oeuvre remains neglected. Described by the composer as “very tragic, epic, like a ballad”, the Fifth Symphony is a heartfelt and forceful statement reflecting persecution and the elusive nature of hope. With its moments of nocturnal enchantment and sparkling humour, the Sixth Symphony is enriched by uniquely colourful orchestration. These moods are also present in the wittily brilliant overture to Lajtha’s ballet Lysistrata.
