The orchestral Suite (op. 18) was finished in 1931 and the composer dedicated it to his excellent fellow-composer László Lajtha. Behind the dedication lies an actual cooperation: it was Lajtha who introduced Weiner into the world of the Hungarian instrumental folk music. As a result, in this four-movement orchestral suite the influence of live folk music can be detected. The suite, composed for a medium-size orchestra employing a full wind section exposes a string of dance melodies and solos originally sounded on folk istruments, clad in an inventive and tastfully wrought orchestral texture. (János Malina)
