Product Notes

Violinist, chamber musician, conductor and teacher, Sándor Végh was one of the most important musicians of the twentieth century. He left Hungary in 1946, to live in France, then later Switzerland and Germany, and in the final decades of his life he made his home in Salzburg in Austria. However, he kept contacts with his homeland and compatriots throughout his entire life. The 5th, closing, double disc of BMC's exclusive Vegh series contains previously unreleased recordings by Sandor Vegh, performing various pieces by Hungarian composers. Beside works of Bartok, Kodaly and lesser known composers as Jeno Takacs, Andor Losonczy, three pieces by Sandor Veress are on the disc, among them the historic world premiere recording of the Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra. Sandor Vegh had personal links to the composers on this CD. He studied composing with Kodaly for one year, while his acquaintance with Bartok was determined by the rehearsals for his String Quartet No. 5. After several days' work together and the premiere of the piece, a good relationship formed between the two of them, and this continued later. Sándor Veress, also born in Kolozsvár (Cluj-Napoca), was a classmate of Sándor Végh's at the Music Academy. Over their friendship of many decades, several works by Veress were premiered by Vegh. In the case of Robert Volkmann the link is intangible: Volkmann was a founding lecturer (composition) at the Budapest Music Academy. However, Sandor Vegh knew Jeno Takacs well, and Andor Losonczy, who was a pupil of Jeno Takacs, and later a good friend, taught at the Salzburg Mozarteum at the same time as Sandor Vegh.
