Zoltan Kodály spent seven years of his childhood in the small Hungarian market town of Galánta, where he soaked up the music of the local Gypsy band. When he had to compose an orchestral piece for the 80th anniversary of the Budapest Philharmonic Society in 1933, he drew upon these memories. Richard Strauss was only 18 years old when he created his Horn Concerto no. 1, a stroke of genius. The piece is still a favourite not only among horn players all around the world. Dukas’s Villanelle, once composed as an étude for would-be hornists, has survived as a popular concert piece because of its refreshing melodic character. Milhaud’s cinematic fantasy is no less cheerful, while Grieg’s Norwegian Dances captivate us with their authentic popular tone.
