The Music

Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin Suite
Dynamic and evocative. The original ballet was banned on moral grounds after its premiere.

Ligeti: Violin Concerto
Innovative, a musical mosaic. Incorporates Hungarian folk tunes, medieval and Renaissance themes.

Dohnányi: Symphony No. 2
Floats between lush and uneasy atmospheres. It is thought to reference the works of Brahms, Wagner, and Bach!
