Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

A delightful collection of a cappella choral music written by a composer of great talent who died tragically at age 55, at the height of his powers. Born in Budapest, he studied with Kodaly and taught composition in Frankfurt until forced to come to England during a mass exodus from Nazism. He became a renowned teacher of composition, described by alumni as "the greatest teacher of our time." The choral music on this disc covers a delightful range of his styles, as well as his characteristic mix of Hungarian-German-Englishness and his impish humor, of which there is ample evidence in the Edward Lear limericks in the "Nonsense Songs."
