The Divertimento No. 1 (op. 20), composed in 1923, can be performed by a string orchestra of any size, or even by a string quintet; one of its movements invoves three ad libitum wind parts as well. This cycle of five movements, dedicated to Fritz Reiner, offers today's performers Hungarian dance pieces preserved in old handwritten sources, orchestrated with his characteristic charm and savours. Among the movements occur well-known dance types like csárdás and verbunkos, but also dance movements with a bias towards genre pieces like the Ronde of Marosszék or the extremely popular Fox Dance. (János Malina)
