Liszt Mosaics, an evening of dance and music that celebrates Hungary’s culture

3 June 2022 Sadler's Wells Theatre

Hungarian State Folk Ensemble presents for one night only, a celebration of Hungary’s music and dance over the centuries. Featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and renowned Canadian violinist Alexandre Da Costa.

It is an evening in two halves, the first part will celebrate the folk and classical music of the time and will be an exploration of how folk music inspired classical. Art Director of Hungarian State Folk Ensemble, violinist István “Szalonna” Pál, will lead some of the traditional folk music, including the piece that was the origin of Bartók’s Duos for Two Violins, and will be joined by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by Oleg Caetani, and renowned Canadian violinist Alexandre Da Costa in Bartók pieces that have drawn influence from traditional Hungarian music.

The evening then shifts to focus on one of the most famous Hungarian composers, Franz Liszt. With music that reaches across the centuries, these mosaics of instrumental, dance and song arrange themselves into a single, grand tableau to bring the past to life and find the roots of our own present. In addition to works by Liszt, the evening features the music of Paganini and Chopin, contemporaries who influenced the composer, alongside some of the finest pieces of Hungary's romanticism.

This concert revives and unites folk music with classical and traditional dance from Hungarian culture. Focusing on Franz Liszt is not just about paying tribute to the genius of this composer and performer but also showing that his work still has relevance in the present day.
