Leader, ARTHUR CATTERALL
Conducted by Sir HENRY WOOD ORCHESTRA Dances of Galanta Koddly
For these Dances Kodaly has drawn upon his native Hungarian folk tunes of which he has made so exhaustive a study They were composed expressly for the eightieth anniversary of the Philharmonic Society of Budapest and appeared only this year. They were given a first performance in England at the Promenades in September of this year, though they were in that part of the programme not broadcast. Listeners are therefore hearing them for the first time, and, as the music is by the composer of that popular and spirited suite ' Hary Janos ', they will listen with interest. Though this work" consists of several dances, it is cast in one movement without a break between the sections.
