Dear Audience,

We regret to inform you that due to sickness, the concert’s soprano soloist, Lidia Fridman  won’t be able to make it to sing for you tonight, so her songs will unfortunately be left out from the programme.

Ms. Fridman explicitly asked us to convey to you how sorry she is for being unable to take to the stage of the Kodály Centre again.

Thank you for your understanding, and we wish you a pleasant evening!



"Bel canto - beautiful singing. An independent era and an independent school within the opera literature. But when is singing not beautiful, if the melody is nobly shaped, and the performer's voice and training are both excellent? This was not enough to satisfy the ideal of bel canto: at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, during the first wave of the Romantic movement, it was a cult surrounding the brilliant performance of richly crafted vocal parts, and the composers of operas often considered the experience of beautiful singing to be more important than even the presentation of dramatic conflict. Giving us a taste of this special treat at this concert will be three internationally successful artists." – informations from Müpa Budapest.

The score for the aria from Donizetti's opera L'Ange de Nisida was provided by the Fondazione Teatro Donizetti. The cabaletta part comes from the unpublished original version of La favorita, edited by Candida Mantica and completed by Federico Biscione.
