Quote from: springrite on October 22, 2020, 09:25:34 AMI played the Hungariton recording of the Lajtha Symphony #9 today in the car. My 12 year old daughter Kimi said: "What is this music! It is the best I have heard this year!" When I told her it was Lajtha, she said: "How come such a great composer isn't better known and played more?"

They are such a positive and affirming set of works from a composer I'd never really heard before. These are so very good! I understand my musical limitations re: anything technical or to be able to speak about structure or form, but it seems to me that these are excellent. I love his ideas and the accessibility of his writing to capture my attention. There is a richness to these works that is very swiftly memorable.
