Hungarian mail was circulated on June 21, 2011 a post devoted entirely to the world premiere of The Bard of Wales, a cantata inspired by the epic poem Arany János [John Arany, March 2, 1817 in the Nagyszalonta-Salonta Romania today October 22, 1882 in Budapest, 130th anniversary of his death in 2012] which was inspired by one of the greatest musicians of our time Welsh Karl Jenkins to take the top of the world of classical music the poem Toldi among them the courage and bravery of man against the tyranny and oppression. E joined the premiere with a beautiful facial on a 27-10 Ft [Sold to 330 Ft] designed by Mihály Zichy who was inspired by the work of Arany. For the label was recovered issued in 1997 to raise funds for youth, then marked the 150th anniversary of the famous text of Arany, essential for understanding the modern Hungarian literature, had a circulation of 2,000 copies and may be destined to become a musical philatelic rarity when you consider everything it stands in the literary and musical.
Jenkins accumulated musical experience that is part of the living history of genres such as Jazz or Rock purest, succeeded in bringing to fruition a mixed choir that sang for three voices [Welsh, English and Hungarian] accompanied by a renowned soloists to which they were joined by the Symphony Orchestra of Hungary (MAV) who dared to one of the greatest epic poets that surely will bring a well deserved recognition of his long and successful career in the music field where perhaps in the near future may come to be considered one of the most influential figures in the British Isles ..
Nicholas Toldi was considered for many years, a fictional character until it discovered certain medieval documents where it appears the reference to Toldi Miklós (Nicholas Toldo was born 1320 and died on November 22, 1390) landed in the region of Bihar, is Magyar literature preserved with exceptional pampering. In 1354 he is mentioned as alispán of the then province of Bratislava Hungary [now the capital of the Republic of Slovakia] and the following year providing services to the Archbishop of Esztergom to spend in the next decade, before the king as a knight. He served the monarchy until the reign of Sigismund of Luxembourg.
Arany, when he published his first work, worked as an official. His initiatory text apparently was THE LOST CONSTITUTION told, would fail again, from a position satirical official life as you can see has a bad reputation from time immemorial. However, [even though we], operate the system and all have, so to speak, as the watchman\’s whistle. In Spain we are only missing the last two legislatures of the century to central government and autonomy of more than fur, we publicly flogged.Perhaps the deskilling that began decades ago, political interference and anything goes, doomed us to this impasse where we Arany portrayed in what would become a trilogy of literary success without precedent for letters Magyars. Toldi is, after all, the kernel closes one of the best texts on the rich tradition that always appealed to Hungary pride of its people.
In 1860 he moved to Pest [one of the three districts of what is now known as Budapest] and ten years later would be named Secretary General of the Academy of Sciences. Besides his ballads, performed many works of vital importance to the literary history of this Central European region.Highlights include the epic of the twelve songs entitled The Death of King Buda (1864), the second and third part of Toldi in 1848-1879 [The Loves of Toldi and Toldi Szerelme ] and in 1854 The decline of Toldi [Toldi estéje]. The aforementioned trilogy, according to wikipedia, chronicles the adventures of a Hungarian knight who possessed extraordinary physical strength. The work honored by the Hungarian mail is composed of twelve songs that contain between 10 and 19 stanzas, each stanza, in turn, has 8 verses. Toldi The night was longer, was composed of 7 songs that contain between 35 and 41 stanzas and each 8 verses.
In 1848 his countrymen he was elected deputy to the Hungarian parliament did not accept honor and retired to his farm where he remained until Lajos Tisza was hired to teach poetry to his son who then would have a vital role in the governance of the then Hungary. In 1851 he was chosen as a professor of literature for the Nagy-Kdrds gym where he was nearly a decade in which new texts presented only if we except one thing about the assonance (1854) or versed Hungarian (1856). On 15 July 1860 he was elected director of the Society Kisfaludy. Two years after his sudden death began to publish his complete works in 8 volumes ending in 1885.
Arany, written shortly before his death Öszikék, reflected, movingly, about a reality that we all come if we have not previously gotten off track. The loneliness and emptiness in life when they barely have the strength to continue. Of course one has to pause and reflect and to some extent, reminds me of my old favorite maxims: \”The only truth in this life is all a lie.\” With the changes, playpens, the pockets emptied, the lack of control with the public and exploitation, we submit, the four talkers of our time, make it even clearer perspective of our namesake, John Arany.
