Lakodalmas 'Wedding dance', Op 21b
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Lakodalmas is a Hungarian wedding dance which Weiner arranged for violin from the first movement of his Divertimento No 2 for string orchestra Op 21, composed in 1938 (he also made a version for cello and piano that was championed by his pupil János Starker). It has the characteristic lassú–friss (slow–fast) alternation of tempi familiar from Liszt’s Hungarian rhapsodies, but Weiner inventively and effectively dovetails them several times.
