Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD (By permission of the Hungarian Restaurant)
Hary Janos , the hero of the comic opera from the music of which this suite is drawn, is a fantastic sort of fellow with a something in him of Charles Chaplin , something of Bill Adams who ' won the Battle of Waterloo ', and quite a lot of Baron Munchausen, who was given to boasting about his impossibly wonderful adventures. The opera is. treated by Kodaly in the manner of a fairy tale, and magic, mystery, folklore, naive simplicity, and fantastic humour are all to be found in the music. The first number, 'The Fairy Tale Begins', opens with a sneeze, to show that the tale is true -a Hungarian superstition ; the second describes the clockwork soldiers in the Emperor s palace marching to clockwork music ;. the third is just a folk song ; the fourth tells of Hary routing the whole French army with his band ot hussars, and of Napoleon begging for mercy ; the fifth is an intermezzo ; and the sixth a march called ' Entrance of the Emperor and his Court '.
