« on: Thursday 07 December 2017, 10:42 »
For those usually allergic to CDs of songs, how about this delightful collection by Imre Szechenyi (1825-1898):

If track 1 doesn't pull you in, you must have a very hard heart indeed...

And, for those who just can't get enough Imre Szechenyi, but want their music undiluted by voice  :o, last week Naxos released an album of orchestral dances, polkas, mazurkas....

I'm guessing this is the fellow that Budapest's important music library- with so many manuscripts by Hungarian composers (not listed on Worldcat, one has to check OSZK directly) - is named after :)?...
"A cat, as I keep on saying, is also a cat for a' that..." - from Natsume Sōseki's Wagahai wa Neko de Aru (I Am a Cat, part 2 chapter 1)

Certainly not me.  I was referring to the "usually allergic" folks you mentioned in your first post... 8)
