Béla Bartók’s symphonic poem Kossuth stands in the shadow of his later works and is hardly ever performed. It was written when Bartók was a mere twenty-year-old and celebrates the Hungarian freedom fighter Lajos Kossuth. It is a brilliantly instrumented, fiery work of his youth, and the opportunity to get to know it is a rewarding experience.

"... given the linited number of choice [Kossuth], you’re not  likely  to do better than this performance and for good measure, Meister and Vienna Radio Symphony round off their program with Bartok’s ever popular Rumanian Dances. So far,  Meister hasn’t recorded much, but he is definately an up and coming confuctor to watch. Recommended."

Jery Dubins - Fanfare - September /October 2013

"... The familiar  Concerto for Orchestra also gets a good reading, its gypsy elements fully audible... Even the album layout itself is effective, beginning with kossuth as a great curtain-raiser, then the concerto as the main event. The last cue, the sure-fire Romanian Dances, makes a dandy encore."

Don O’Connor - American Record Guide - July/August 2013
