Stevan Hristi? and Josip Slavenski were significant musical figures in Belgrade after World War One. Hristi?’s ballet The Legend of Ohrid is an orientally tinged score typical of earlier, late 19th-century Slavic composers. Slavenski’s Balkanophonia is a more up-to-date, but rather anonymous suite for violin and orchestra. Committed performances. Keith Potter
