The orchestra will give us a new performance.
The Budapest Festival Orchestra, helmed by Iván Fischer, and featuring the best soloists Hungary has to offer, is making its second visit to the Easter Festival with a very Mitteleuropa programme.
Fischer likes to revisit pieces and the orchestra will give us a new performance of Bartok’s six Romanian Folk Dances, played, in part, on traditional instruments. This will be followed by a bouquet of lieder by Hugo Wolf, the late 19th century master-craftsman of German melodies.
The evening will end with Dvorak’s Symphony n°8 – Fischer’s favourite – filling the Grand Théâtre with the enchanted air of mysterious Bohemian forests.
