Folk Song Suite No. 2 by : Frigyes Hidas
Frigyes Hidas (1928-2007) was the most prolific Hungarian composer for wind ensembles; and his works are the most often performed. His worldwide popularity is based on works such as Balettzene (Ballet music); Vidam zene (Cheerful music); El nem táncolt balett (Undanced ballet); Requiem and Save the Sea. His folk song suites; which are enormously popular in his homeland; are fine examples of Hidas' mature style in the genre of folk song arrangements.
The first suite works up nine folk songs of differing character and atmosphere; while the second; with its recurrent structure; makes use of five melodies; creating a modern harmonic environment around them and thereby highlighting even more the beauty of the melodies. To perform these works effectively; ample technique is required; as well as an ability to shape the music freely. Highly recommended for ensembles with an interest in Hungarian wind music and folklore.
