Andor Foldes Plays Zoltán Kodály

Andor Foldes recorded a selection of Kodály’s piano works for American Decca (the catalogue now owned by Deutsche Grammophon) in January 1957. A close compatriot of both Bartók and Kodály, Foldes was one of Hungary’s pre-eminent pianist whose discography for Deutsche Grammophon is extensive. Included on this CD are Foldes’s own transcriptions of music from Háry János, a selection of Children’s Dances and the Dances of Marosszék, first written for piano though much more familiar today in their orchestral guise.
