Lukács Miklós
Cimbalom Concertos (Vukán György, Szakcsi-Lakatos Béla, Oláh Kálmán, Fekete-Kovács Kornél compositions) (2CD) classical

Enlarge this picture! "In classical music almost all instruments have had the privilege of a concerto dedicated to them. In the case of the cimbalom, this opportunity presented itself relatively late, in the 1960s-70s; this is when the instrument appeared on the mental map of contemporary composers. From then on almost all active composers honoured the cimbalom with a work, be it solo pieces, work for chamber orchestra, or concertos. When the idea of this album came up I knew I wanted to create something new. The improvisative element in the form, that is the cadenza, faded out strangely enough in the heyday of concertos, the Romantic period. This is what I felt to be the mission of the present album: to approach the genre from jazz, from improvisation. With all due respect to form, I feel I can only be myself this way. The Cimbalom Concertos are therefore doubly special: the instrument in a concerto is a rarity, as well as the marked influence of jazz." - Miklós Lukács
