Andor Foldes (piano)

Andor Foldes recorded a selection of Kodály’s piano works for American Decca (the catalogue now owned by Deutsche Grammophon) in January 1957. A close compatriot of both Bartók and Kodály, Foldes was one of Hungary’s pre-eminent pianist whose discography for Deutsche Grammophon is extensive. Included on this CD are Foldes’s own transcriptions of music from Háry János, a selection of Children’s Dances and the Dances of Marosszék, first written for piano though much more familiar today in their orchestral guise.

“This 1957 mono recording includes Foldes's own transcriptions of music from Hary Janos, and a selection of dances. Vibrant, energetic performances.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2014 ****

Klara Würtz (piano)

For her fourth album for Piano Classics Klara Würtz chose music from the heart of Europe, by Janacek and Kodaly, music closely related to the country of its origin, its landscape, irs folklore and its soul.

Janácek’s suites “In the Mist” and “On an overgrown path” contain miniatures of the most hearbreaking intimacy, from deep sorrow and melancholy to utter bliss and joy. In the works by Hungarian Zoltán Kodály there is a direct and palpable connection with the folk music of Hungary and Transsylvania. This beautiful program concludes with an exciting rendition of the Marosszek Dances. Klára Würtz, Hungarian by birth, knows the secret language of this music, her musical intuition finding the most telling melodic inflections in this speaking music.

Klára Würtz has made over 35 CDs. Her Schubert Impromptus recording for Piano Classics (PCL0013) received rave reviews from the press: Fanfare: “There are just a handful of great recordings of these 8 pieces: Schnabel, Brendel, Lupu, Zimerman, Uchida, Perahia…I believe that Klára Würtz belongs to this exalted company…this is very natural and distinctive music‐making at a very high level..”” (Charles Timbrell, Fanfare). “Klára Würtz’ intelligence, technical finesse and innate musicality serve the Schubert Impromptus well” (Jed Distler, Classicstoday.com).

Valentina Tóth (piano)

‘Hungarian Horizon’ is the debut CD by the highly-talented 18 year old pianist Valentina Tóth, and features the music by the two most influential Hungarian composer’s of the 20th century, Zoltan Kodaly and Bela Bartok. The works that she has chosen for the disc are Kodaly’s 7 pieces, opus 11 and Marosszek Dances, as well as Bartok’s 14 Bagatelles and 3 Hungarian Folk Songs from Csik.

In 2009 Valentina Tóth won first prize in the Princess Christina Piano Competition and her career has been on the up and up ever since. Although she has only recently finished secondary school and is studying at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, she has already been on the stage at Carnegie Hall. For her first album Valentina Tóth has decided to perform music by two of her favourite composers, Bartók and Kodály. The Bagatelles opus 6 were written in 1908 and are an important link in the work of Bartók, since they date from the time when Bartók started to seriously collect and document Hungarian folk music.

Tóth combines this and the same composer’s Three Folk Songs from Csík with the Seven Piano Pieces, Op. 11, and the Dances of Marosszék by Kodály. Kodály based the latter work on melodies and dances he had collected in the Marosszék region in Transsylvania, Romania. Originally written for piano, he later adapted it for orchestra.

“Toth's approach...is fresh and thoughtful. Her realization of the subtlest of Bartok's infinitely varied indications of touch and tempo are almost always persuasive...[her] perceptive interpretations strike a perfect balance between rich, colouristic expression and structure.” International Record Review, September 2013

Miki Aoki (piano)

Zoltán Kodály was one of the leading musical personalities in Hungary in the twentieth century, exerting lasting influence as a composer, a teacher, a scholar and a conductor. His works are still just as alive today as during his lifetime.

“Miki Aoki responds well to the music's virtuosic demands...but she is alive to the elusive subtleties of the simpler pieces...Particularly impressive is the way she 'gets inside' the Op. 3 Piano Pieces, revealing a remarkable expressive range in a genuinely memorable performance.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2012 ****

Paul Tortelier (cello)


Kodály's orchestral scores are full of what Bartók described as ‘the most perfect embodiment of the Hungarian spirit’. There's fierce virtuosity of his Sonata for Solo Cello, and haunting writing for voices in his choral works – the expression of his belief in the universal musical value of singing.
