This Concerto was inspired and written in honour of Zoltan Kodaly. Hartmann was inspired to write a piece of music characterised by a Hungarian flavour, as much in the cadenza-like free passages reminiscent of gypsy music in the third movement "Fantasie" as in the vivacious "dance variations" of the second movement.
