If we search for the composer of the ideal music, Haydn, Bartók or Schubert can easily come to our mind. This night will provide us with the chance to experience the encounter of these composers with their ideal. First, the young Haydn, the conductor from Esterháza, will delight us with his Symphony No. 10 written in an optimistic, spring-like tone. Bartók –a young man hopelessly in love – composed a violin concerto for the lady of his dream, but his love remained unrequited and the composition remained unpresented in Bartók’s lifetime. Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 will be performed as the concluding piece of the night, which relates the 19-year-old Schubert’s „encounter” with Mozart. In 1816, Schubert got enchanted by several of Mozart’s compositions, and his former Beethoven craze (which comes to show in his Symphony No. 4) was replaced by his infatuation with Mozart’s music for a year. This work pays tribute to this passion. Though indirectly through Schubert, Mozart is also evoked among the ideal composers. Spend an ideal night full of beautiful music with us!
"We spent most of our time among child and adult musicians, and as we watched them, it became natural that we also wanted to join in. I started learning to play the violin, because I saw my sister play – who I regard as a role model – and wanted to try out what she was doing. Music was never imposed on me from outside; it was a force coming from inside for both of us.” (Fidelio)
