About the Event
In this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the sounds of classical music by Monteverdi, Bartók and Schubert at Budapest's Palace of Arts.
The charming Vilde Frang will be the soloist of the Festival Orchestra yet again. This time she is to breathe life into Bartók’s score, one of the most demanding concertos in musical history, his Violin Concerto No. 2. To begin the colorful program, a few of the vocal works by Monteverdi, accompanied by an ensemble of instruments, will be performed. Following Baroque musical jokes and 20th century sounds, the second part of the concert features Schubert’s most significant instrumental work, a milestone of romanticism, the last symphony he finished.
- Monteverdi, Claudio – A Selection From Scherzi Musicali
- Bartók, Béla – Violin Concerto No. 2, Sz. 112
- Schubert, Franz – Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944, 'Great'
