"[Goldmark's] musical language is determined by a multiplicity of influences from Mendelssohn to Impressionism, incorporating Hungarian folk culture and his childhood memories of the synagogue... In his orchestral works (for example Penthesilea op. 31, Ländliche Hochzeit op. 26 and Zrinyi op. 47), he used the language of Liszt and Wagner as well as formal and programmatical elements of the New German school." William Pfannkuch and Gerhard J. Winkler in Grove Music Online.
A very good copy of Goldmark's first, and perhaps most popular, orchestral work. Item #26613
