Kodaly’s popular Galanta Dances, inspired by the music of his hometown in Hungary, displays the brilliant playing of principal clarinetist, Rane Moore.

  • Zoltán Kodály wrote this piece based on folk music from Galánta (today this a town that is part of Slovakia.) Dances of Galánta was inspired by and takes its themes from books of Hungarian and nomad dances written in the 1800s. The piece was written as a commission for the 80th anniversary of the Budapest Philharmonic Society.
