The Hungarian State Symphony Orchestra, heard here under the direction of Adam Fischer, is clearly a skilled orchestra. The ensemble plays well together and the interpretation, especially of the Háry János Suite, is both thoughtful and energetic. But with a composer such as Kodály for whom rhythm is an important factor, the recording quality itself is a major detractor. Rhythms and articulations become blurred and fast passages become nothing more than a wash of sound
