A new album has been released under HUNGAROTON label by contraalto Judit Rajk presenting a special collection of 20th - 21st century Hungarian compositions from Kodály's rarely recorded ballads and folk song arrangements to contemporary composers such as Zoltán Jeney, Barnabás Dukay and Máté Balogh representing the emerging generation of composers. Although the bases of the works in this recording differ, they share one point in common: they use a small slice of the past in a daring and unique manner, whether it is actually used or merely as an element of inspiration. The challenge for the performer is to decide how to enrich this “past”, this time of tradition, with her own tempo.
