Rossz csillag alatt született

Finally, I discover that Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor, Op.85 may have had a reason to exist after all. Listen to Venetian Snares‘ ‘Szamár madár’, from his album Rossz csillag alatt született (Born Under A Bad Star).

Apparently ‘szamár madár’ translates literally as ‘donkey bird’, but more generally as ‘stupid bird’. Which suggests that he understood Elgar better than most.
