Work introduction

Count László Hunyady was the biological father of Gottfried von Einem, who only met him twice as a child. It is from him that Gottfried von Einem inherited his musical talent. It was not until long after the Count died – in spectacular circumstances while hunting big game in Africa in 1927 – that von Einem felt an affinity with his father and composed this orchestral piece in his memory in the early 1980s.
