Sonata, for cello and piano by Tibor Harsányi

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 18 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

An early recording of Tibor Harsányi’s 1928 “Sonata” for cello and piano, performed by Hans Kindler on cello and the composer on piano. A French composer of Hungarian birth, Harsányi studied with both Bartók and Kodály, and toured extensively as a concert pianist before finally settling down in the Netherlands and then Paris in 1924. Although Harsányi early works were influenced by the same desire to explore native Hungarian folk songs like his mentor Bartók, he later developed his own harmonic language, embracing both dissonant chromatic as well as diatonic styles of writing. He was even known to incorporate influences from American jazz music. However this work is more traditional and austere than many of his compositions.
