Catalogue Number: 12T011
Format: CD reissue
Description: Lajtha established his reputation as his country’s foremost symphonist but also showed a strong affinity for the stage, writing his one-act ballet Capriccio in 1944. Despite the darkness of the times the 77-minute ballet is filled with light and set in the period around 1700, the age of Watteau. Taking commedia dell’arte as his model, Lajtha’s characterization brims with wit and elegance. Pécs Symphony Orchestra; Nicolás Pasquet.
