Notes & Reviews:
This is one of four special APEX releases of (mostly) music from Hungary performed by Hungarian artists.
American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The orchestra is Hungarian (Budapest, it seems), the sound decent.
MusicWeb International, 23rd January 2014
[Héja] certainly grasps the stylistic nuances required to bring the music to life. He is not frightened of rubato although there could possibly have been even more. The blend of the orchestra and tempo variations is deftly handled and the Hungary's Danubia Symphony Orchestra clearly have this music in their bones.
Recording information: Phoenix Studio, Hungary (06/21/2008-06/25/2008).
