Rost Andrea
Pannonian Songs
(Pannon dalok)
world music

Enlarge this picture! Andrea Rost is sharing her sentiments about her wider homeland – in songs. Having sung the most prominent opera roles, the idea of rephrasing the musical culture of the Pannon region has occured to her – but this time not in the language of the opera. Filtered through three different ethnic groups, she draws an internal picture about the musical tradition of Hungary and the Central-European region. To realise all these, she found such composers to collaborate with who are not only knowledgable but also well-known performers of their art. The Balázs Dongó Szokolay – Mátyás Bolya composer duo’s folk music inspired reproductions as well as Ferenc Jávori klezmer music, go wandering into innumerable corners of this extraordinarily rich world of tunes, ranging from the archaic Hungarian folk songs through the tunes of the Roma ethnicity as far as that of the klezmer tunes, which moulds many different kinds into one. Szilvia Bognar's authentic style, learnt from the peasant musicians, is a fair match complementing the folksong interpretetations of Andrea Rost, well known from the Bartók and Kodály reproductions. The encounter of these five musicians is not merely the encounter of different genres, it is rooted much deeper than that: one spirituality moulded into honest chamber music.
