Roland Szentpali (*1977)
Roland Szentpali was born in 1977 in Nyíregyháza, Hungary. He began his musical studies in his hometown; in 1991 he was admitted to the Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest, as the tuba student of József Bazsinka and later of Gábor Adamik. At the age of 16 he won the national “Brasses and Percussion” competition, then wrote and performed his first concerto for tuba and symphony orchestra,...
The individual movements drew their inspiration from the poems of the Hungarian writer, Attila Jozsef (1905-1937), whose destiny was tragic. The horn and piano are treated as equal partners, and together they exude an extraordinary dramatic and emotional intensity through Szentpali's subtle and captivating use of style and language.
In the first two movements,1. Munkashalal (A Worker’s Death), and 2. Kis Asszonyom (My Little Lady), the piano offers densely textured harmonic and melodic sequences over which the ample voice of the horn soars.
In the last movement, Perc (A Minute), the Hungarian soul emerges with an extremely dynamic virtuosity.
