Kati Szvorák
Iglice Szívem: Népdalok gyermekeknek (Hungarian Folk Songs for Children
Hungaroton

By Stacy Meyn

Published March 24, 2006

Hungarian vocalist/arranger Katalin “Kati” Szvorák wins folk song competitions, releases 15 solo recordings in 20 years, is a voracious performer (over 2000 concerts in 27 countries), and loves kids. She’s known as “the little sister of sunshine” back home and in a smidge over 43 minutes on this disc, she shows why. Iglice Szívem: Népdalok gyermekeknek (Hungarian Folk Songs for Children) was first introduced in 1989, but Hungaroton Records gives its immortal tracks a deserved new lease on life. Szvorák possesses a lithe and melodious voice capable of wide range (she does a convincing bagpipe impression), and she is joined by the Téka Ensemble, as well as a host of child singers, of course! Topics addressed are those valuable to kids everywhere, such as animal songs, dance melodies, carnival tunes, and even fun name-mocking ditties. Children like to imitate adult activities, so there are some wedding songs, and holiday excitement is handled in Christmas, New Year’s, and spring customs songs. Instrumentation is varied too, with double bass, hurdy-gurdy, fiddle, zither, Jew’s harp, Armenian drum, peasant flute and more. Enjoyable at any age!
