The Hungarian composer Istvan Szelenyi (1904-1972) studied with Zoltan Kodaly and later himself became a lecturer at the Budapest Academy of Music. This Rhapsody, published here for the first time, was written in 1956 for the Henryk Wieniawski Composition Competition in Warsaw. On the autograph manuscript Szelenyi noted in French a saying of his former composition teacher Zoltan Kodaly: la musique est pour tous - Music is the property of the community - it belongs to everyone. A virtuoso concert piece in free rhapsodic form, suitable for competitions and concert performance.

  • January 28, 2013 Nice Rhythm

    I just played this with the pianist for the first time... It sure is a nice piece to pay. Lots of Syncopation , nice bowing patterns, and rhythms galore. it goes back and forth from 5notes/beat to 6 notes/beat and sometimes even 7 notes/beat. Nice harmonies and quite...

    virtuosic for both instruments. Lots of parallel harmonies. Challenging.
