1095 Budapest, Komor Marcell utca 1.

The free concert will feature two real romantic works, including a third, which was created on the border of romance and modernity, but there are still many romantic has a feature.
Mussorgsky’s musical painting, Night on the Barren Mountain, evokes a popular theme of romance, the Witch’s Saturday, also composed by Berlioz.

Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite borrows from Russian folk tales the motifs of the evil wizard, the wonderful bird, the brave prince, and the captive princesses. The tone was influenced by the Slavic folk, but also by the virtuosity of Rimsky-Korsakov’s instrumental art, French Impressionism and nascent modernity.

Listening to Dvořák’s New World Symphony, knowing the title, we can believe that the author tells the story of America: we can imagine the monumental proportions of both the infinite prairie and the bustling big cities. In fact, the work features only a single Indian melody that can truly be linked to America, otherwise Slavic music, as well as the author’s other symphonies.

This time the first guest conductor of the Dohnányi Orchestra of Budafok, Guido Mancusi, plays In the virtual concert hall of Müpa Home.
