"This record is an extraordinary undertaking. It isn't often that a performer renders his message in several styles, several musical languages, and several artistic modes of expression within the framework of one production. What you will come across with István Pál Szalonna's violin playing, is definitely something different than a pianist's repertoire which extends from say Bach to Bartók. Here from the lean Mezőség peasant music (Transylvania), to the tunes from far Northeastern Hungary, the Gömör shepherd melodies and on to the style of the band from the village of Tarnalelesz, spilling over into (what's referred to as) "folksy composed Hungarian music": we get an ample taste of the colourful world of sound which has ripened over the last two or three hundred years of Hungarian violin folklore."

Gergely Agócs
