Zoltán Kodály(1882-1967), Dances of Galánta(1933)

Zoltán Kodály and his close friend Béla Bartók, have visited the farming villages in his native country and collecting approximately three thousand folk songs. Galánta used tobe a small town in the northeastern part of Hungary. Kodály’s family moved to Galánta when he was three years old, and he spent his childhood until he was ten. Among Kodály’s collection of folk music were Galánta’s folk tunes and Gypsy music that are tinged with his childhood memories, and Dances of Galánta, the orchestral work that was finished when he was fifty-one years old, is a clear example of his devotion to and scrutiny of folk sources.

Alexandr Glazunov(1865-1936), Violin Concerto in A minor, Op. 82(1904)

Violin Concerto in A minor is one of Glazunov’s most frequently played pieces, and the composer threw his heart and soul into writing this concerto to the extent that he learned how to play the violin himself. This work is one of the finest violin concertos of the time, in which tour de force of compositional skills was exerted to the highest degree. The concerto was premiered on February 15th, 1905 at a Russian Musical Society in St. Petersburg by Leopold Auer as soloist. Its three (or four, depending on differing views) movements are played attacca, and the themes from the previous movements reappear, thus making the whole work quite like a fantasy.


Dmitri Shostakovich(1906-1975), Symphony No. 1 in F minor, Op. 10(1924~25)

St. Petersburg-born Dmitri Shostakovich entered Petrograd Conservatory in 1919(St. Petersburg changed its name to Petrograd in 1914, only to be changed again ten years later to Leningrad), and was greatly influenced by its director Alexander Glazunov. This symphony was composed as a graduation piece in 1925 when Shostakovich was nineteen years old, and Glazunov was one of the judges. The symphony was premiered in Leningrad under the baton of Nikolai Malko on May 12, 1926. The extreme contrast between its violent and destructive passion and pitch-dark withdrawal is typical of Shostakovich’s symphonic scenario for his future compositions, awakening a unique Shostakovichian sentiment.
