Concert marking International Music Day

Kodály: Dances of Galánta
Bartók: Piano Concerto No. 3
Bartók: Hungarian Pictures
Liszt: Les Preludes
Conductor: Tamás Vásáry
Hungarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
József Balog (piano)

Melodies evoking the recruiting songs of Dances of Galánta, the beginning impacting like natural phenomena in the first movement of Bartók’s third piano concerto, An Evening in the Village or Bear Dance from Hungarian Pictures, and finally the unceasing rise and divine apotheosis of the Ferenc Liszt symphonic poem are all iconic musical moments from works by giants of Hungarian music history. These moments capture the essence of the style, way of thinking and personality of the three composers, and perhaps it is no coincidence that posterity endowed these pieces with symbolic meanings going far beyond themselves, moreover, these works are known in all corners of the world to have germinated in Hungarian soil.
