Benedict Silberman´s Chorus and Orchestra

MORE THAN THIRTY of the best-known, most beloved melodies of Hungary are performed by Europe´s popular Benedict Silberman, his chorus and orchestra, in this extraordinary hi-fi long-playing album.
Actually recorded in Europe, "Hungarian Moods" runs the gamut, as they say in Budapest, from sad and tear-prevoking melodies to gay, danceable, gypsy-tinged czardas — each one superbly played by the Silberman musicians. The record opens and closes with I Love Budapest. Between the two performances are Hungarian (and several celebrated Central European) songs known throughout the world.
A highly emotional Gypsy Violin Lament is followed uy Ritkn Buza ("When the good wheat is scarce, so are the beautiful girls") and then Maestro Silberman and his fifty musicians offer Robert de Kers´ Gypsy Song, a medley of festive folk tunes entitled Happy Hearts and Czak Egy Kislany Van A Vilagon ("There´s but one girl in the world"), the lovely theme employed by Sarasate in his memorable Zigeunerweisen.
Thirty-eight seconds of Hungarian cymbalon lead to Minek A Szokc Ennekem, which in translation to English asks, "why should I love blonde when I´m in love with the brunette?" Then, in quick succession come Puszta Czardás, Te Adtad Nekem Az Elsö Almatlan Ejsmakát ("You gave me the first night of love"), Tezona, Exért A Legényert Nem Adnék Egy Krajcart ("The lad is not worth a cent"), Buda-Czárdas, Akácos Ut ("lilac road"), a potpourri of beloved Hungarian and Rumanian themes and finally — The Black Canary. And thus Side One is concluded.

The great gypsy composer "Lavotta" of the eighteenth century inspired the opening theme of Side Two, Lavotta´s Serenade. Maestro Silberman then segues into Szép Asszonynak Kurizdini, followed by Szeretnék Mdjus Ejszakdján ("I would love to pluck all the lilacs in one night of May"). Another flower song follows, Szep A Rózsan, but the "rose" is a young lady.

The fifth melody of Side Two is the extremely melodic A Faluban Nines Tobb Kislany, and then comes Repülj Fecském ("Fly, my swallow, to warmer lands").
Again, a brief cymbalon solo and then Hejre Kati, the song about a million stars shir.uig, that ingeniously combines two other distinguished Hungarian songs, En Vagyok A Falü Rossza Egyedül and Vörös Bort Ittam Az Este, the latter a drinking tune. The lively Devil´s Czárdas, the fisherman´s song Hullamzo-Balaton and Olyán Edes follow.
"The little house with the green windows" is the translation of Zoldablakos Kicsi Ház. And then the Hungarian melody So Little Time which the great Brahms used. The Gypsy´s Hora and I Love Budapest conclude the program dramatically.
"Hungarian Moods" is one of the more than one hundred long-playing, modern, high-fidelity albums comprising the popular ´Capitol´ of the World series - music imported from far-off lands for the entertainment and edification of North Americans.
Benedict Silberman´s chorus and orchestra also may be heard in Capitol´s "Beloved Jewish Music" album, T 10064, one of the most popular long-playing records of its kind ever released.
