In this concert we are celebrating our 30-year anniversary. Come join us!
The overture to the programme will be two works from 100 years ago, both written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the unification of Pest, Buda and Óbuda (thus the birth of the city of Budapest – the tr.): Ernő Dohnányi’s Festival Overture and Bartók’s Dance Suite.
Next you can listen to a virtual symphony in four movements, selected from different periods and composers in music history: the first movement is Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3, which is a display of heroism. The second movement is the 3rd movement of Brahms’ Symphony No. 3, one of the most beautiful and popular pieces in music history, which exudes emotion and love. The third movement is Birthday Scherzo composed specially for the occasion by Guido Mancusi, our orchestra’s principal guest conductor, and composer. The final movement is The Throne Room & End Title from John Williams’ music for Star Wars, bringing our festive “symphony” to a close with a sense of sublimity.
