A Summer Night
Dreaming under a starry night
Einojuhani Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus – Concerto for Birds and Orchestra, Op. 61
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: A Midsummer Night's Dream
We can be certain that Zsolt Hamar's creativity will make us fly on the wings of our imagination under a starry sky, dreaming freely at the final concert of the series while listening to our heart!
We can hear nature-related music also this evening. Kodály wrote his piece Summer Evening for his graduation concert, and Impressionism's influence left a powerful trace in it. Rautavaara is the great Finnish composer of the 20th century. His Concerto for Birds and Orchestra presents to us the birds of the cold north in three movements: The bog, Melancholy and Swans migrating. The orchestra fades at the end of each movement as if it was disappearing in the distance and the vision was coming to an end. The second part of the concert features Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which brings Shakespeare's eponymous comedy onto the stage of music. As soon as we hear the first bar, we can see the starry summer sky in our mind's eye. Although everyone is familiar with the Wedding March, this composition can be heard only rarely in its entirety. This night, the audience of the Pannon Philharmonic can relish the piece from beginning to end, together with the spoken text.

Do you also get sometimes lost in the jungle of information, downloads and playing lists? Do you feel disorientated in the field of classical music? If you don't know what to choose from pieces all with unfamiliar titles and have no idea who is a really good performer and which orchestra you can trust, come along with us in the 2022/23 Season, and we'll help you meet the Right One(s)!
Works, soloists and conductors "fit to flirt with" will present you with evergreen pieces of various styles written long ago or recently. At the end of the series, we'll be lying on a meadow under a starry sky and going on a journey of dreams so that music can leave promising and pleasant traces in your heart, similar to a thrilling flirtation.
The concert is supported by The National Cultural Fund of Hungary.
The Media Partner for the FLIRT Series is Made in Pécs.
