Within his extended discography, Neeme Jarvi has explored the work of some magnificent Eastern European composers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, recently including Suchon and Scharwenka. He here reveals the delightful, witty Hungarian style of Leo Weiner, who found inspiration in the music of Bartok, his near contemporary, and taught such great figures of the Hungarian musical scene as Solti and Dorati, but also Kurtag. Throughout these recordings of the five Divertimentos and the Serenade, some of the works new to the catalogue, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor encapsulate the freshness and fluidity of engaging, yet too rarely performed compositions.
