Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra (Bratislava)


Ondrej Lenard


Alexander Moyzes (1906-1984) remains one of the most significant figures in the establishment of Slovak musical nationalism in the 20th century. A profound and admired symphonist, he also wrote a sequence of orchestral music that explored the landscapes and national folk identity of his native country. Down the River Váh, op.26, is one of his most colourful and vivid scores, charting a journey from the Tatra mountains passing flowery meadows, imposing castles and surging waters. The Dances from Gemer, op.51, and Pohronie Dances, op.43, are characteristic national works epitomising Slovakia’s fertile folkloric traditions.
