Midday Classical: Hungary, Poland, and Paganini Variations

01/12/10 10:00AM By Walter Parker

Erno Dohnanyi used Hungarian folksong as the basis of his Ruralia Hungarica, or Scenes of Rural Hungary.  The Polish connection to Tchaikovsky's Polish Symphony is more tenuous, so we'll add Mazurkas by Chopin.  We'll also listen to music of Brahms, Lutoslawski, and Rachmaninoff all based on the same theme by Paganini.
