Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Pure Hungarian folk music had little place in the elegant concert halls of Budapest a century ago, until Zoltan Kodaly came along and fused his native Hungarian folk music, with the high brow Viennese style. The Munich Radio Orchestra is in Naples, playing Kodaly's "Dances of Galanta," under the direction of Daniel Oren.
