works of composer Miklos Rozsa. Like many I was aware of him first through his great film music which led me to naturally explore his concert works and after hearing them (including this recording) cemented my opinion that Rozsa indeed was one of the greatest composers who ever lived. His musical style is undeniably his in all his works and I hope to get more of his concert music.
I'm not a musician but I really enjoyed his exquisite string writing in his Sinfonia Concertante and his Tripartita is a powerful work and it reminds one of his film work. Rozsa's Hungarian roots are evident in much of his work but most notably in his clasical music. This album showcases that aspect of his musical nature (my father was also Hungarian so maybe I'm biased) and I can't wait to hear more of it. The performances of the Philharmonia Hungarica under the baton of Werner
Andreas Albert is assured and authorative. The digital sound is spectacular and the liner notes by Eckhardt van den Hoogen are very concise and illuminating as he reflects on the musical talent and legacy of Miklos Rozsa. A must for every lover of serious music of the highest order!

Miklós Rósza was, quite simply, a great composer. Though his style was relatively conservative, his musical language is personal enough to be recognizable. Now, even in his works for the concert hall there is a sense of color, drama and an epic sweep often associated with film music, but that is, of course, entirely unsurprising – that his music sometimes sounds like film music is because the film music Rózsa wrote in his personal style became so influential that we have come to associate with the big, epic classics of the cinema, not the other way around.

The film connection is perhaps most recognizable (at least among the works presented here) in his 1958 Sinfonia Concertante, which really sounds like a big, epic story in which the soloists, violin and cello, are the main characters. The music is, quite simply, wonderful; the solo writing is imaginative, and it is excellently realized here by András Agoston and Lásló Fenjo. The Philharmonia Hungarica provides superb support, full of color and spirit and drama, under Werner Andreas Albert. The Notturno Ungherese, while equally stylistically characteristic, is an interesting contrast, being introspective and meditative in character – though it is equally colorfully scored – and imaginatively employing Hungarian folk music (or at least reminiscences of Hungarian folk music).

The Tripartita from 1972 is also very much rooted in Hungarian folk music. Stylistically, it is at least a bit more “modern sounding” and occasionally rather Bartokian in style, even though Rózsa’s own voice is clearly audible throughout. Though jagged and sometimes spiky, this is a rivetingly dramatic, brilliantly scored work, utterly captivating. Once again, the performances strike me as magnificent (though I haven’t heard many of the alternative), and the recording is very good though perhaps a little bit cavernous. All in all, a splendid disc, strongly recommended
