Good performanes, but they don't make you want to dance

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Masur recorded the 21 Hungarian Dances in 1981, years before he helped lead the revolt against the E. German Communist party or came West to head the NY Phil. in what turned out to be a dreary tenure. The performances are good enough, with nice ensemble and forward recording of the woodwinds. However, there's not much bounce in Masur's step, and unlike the set conducted by Mogrelia on a super-budget CD with a Cassovia ensemble I've never heard of, Masur didn't make me want to dance. Go for big-time conductors like Abbado and Karajan if you want virtuosic rendiitons, Mogrelia if you want a spring in your step."
