During this concert, we can see America through Ernst von Dohnányi's eyes. The American Rhapsody is his last large-scale work, written in his third year in the US, and similarly to his compositions based on Hungarian folk themes, this work also uses folk songs, only American ones. It lends it a radically different character, yet transplanting folklorism from Hungary into a US-American setting is an exciting experiment. The antipole of the American Rhapsody is Dohnányi’s one-movement “cello concerto” completed in his twenties, which carries the memories of his childhood and Brahms’ German Romanticism. The event concludes with a work of a true British composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber. Experimentality and alienness can be perceived also in this piece, as the Requiem written by the popular musical composer is the only sacred and classical music work in his oeuvre, a one-time adventure in an utterly unknown genre, which, however, turned out to be a global success, similarly to Webber's stage works.
