RÓSZA Three Hungarian Sketches
BARTÓK Piano Concerto No 3
ARRIAGA Los esclavos felices, Overture
MOZART Symphony No 41, Jupiter
Conductor Roberto Minczuk
Piano Llŷr Williams
Music evoking the Eastern European plains and vibrancy of its folk culture from two Hungarians, in exile in America: the fresh lyricism of Bartók's Third Piano Concerto (his last complete work) and colourful evocation of Magyar life from one of the last century's great film composers, Miklós Rózsa. And there's music by Arriaga, the "Spanish Mozart" alongside the real thing: Mozart's majestic, final symphony, Jupiter.
