Hungarian Dances

17 May 2023 17:15 - 18:35

This early evening concert explores Hungarian music and its influences.

Kathryn Stott and Tim Horton perform some thrillingly virtuosic Brahms for four hands, following Ensemble 360’s performance of Haydn’s witty and beguiling piano trio.

With hints of Hungarian folk music in its dance-like finale, this charming trio is a late work in the composer’s staggering catalogue of innovation.

Ligeti’s complex, lively and brilliant Six Bagatelles continues this exploration of Hungarian music and its influences, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the birth of the composer.

Panufnik’s duo, commissioned for the violinist Yehudi Menhuin, also celebrates his love of Romanian and Hungarian dance music.
