Product Description

CD Description

Muzsikás and Márta Sebestyén are two of the most important names in European folk music. Compiled by Joe Boyd this 2CD set features highlights from their forty-year career inc. tracks from Hannibal Records, recorded live and two previously unreleased.


This collection features the best of their work with Márta Sebestyén with whom they collaborated since their beginnings – Márta rose to worldwide fame after she was featured in the film The English Patient (it is her voice that Ralph Fiennes plays to Kirstin Scott Thomas on the gramophone).


Muzsikás and Márta Sebestyén became a leading force in the traditional music scene during the early ‘70s fast becoming Hungary’s most popular traditional music group.


By the 80s with a string of records released on Joe Boyd’s Hannibal label they performed in concert halls all over the world from London’s Royal Albert Hall, Paris’s Théatre de la Ville, the Santa Cecila Academy in Rome and New York’s Carnegie Hall.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful sounds 8 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Authentic Hungarain folk, with superb violin playing and at times the perfect voice of Marta Sebastien. Altho I prefer her work with the Vujusics, this is still entrancing. Veering at times from folk to classical - where is that blurred boundary anyway? - but never less than lively. And with 2 CDs , its a bargain as well. Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Muzsikas 23 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
This group of hungarian musicians are the real thing. They are just incredible. Playing on authentic instruments their music is drawn from traditional tunes and songs using many of those collected by Bartok and Kodaly in the last century. Some of these were recorded on wax cylinders and provide an invaluable source for musicians like Muzikas. So an authentic background but what about the music? Exciting, exhilarating, a whirl of sound when at its fastest, simply fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Compilation - great introduction 11 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a really good compilation with some of their best music on, lots of fiddles and contra and bass, Marta Sebestyen's singing is wonderful. I think the only downside is the lack of information about each track. I have this on some of the old records so I'm not bothered, but somebody new to it might be. Having said that I still give it 5 stars, it's a great introduction and compilation of their stuff and I recommend it to anybody who likes this kind of music.
