A Fantastic Carnival
Come to our Fantastic Carnival with fancy dresses, a raffle and exciting gifts. If you come wearing a fancy dress and buy a ticket, you are automatically entitled to a raffle ticket too. Slip into your fancy costume from school, and you'll have a double chance to win our grand prize. We can chase away winter only together, and we, on our part, are ready to do so with a savage party.
We will turn the concert hall of the Kodály Centre even more atmospheric with carnival decorations and beanbags.
The event's host is Krisztián Horváth, who will guide the audience through the world of music as a brilliant tour guide, not hiding from them the most important and funniest details. Even some animals will join our Carnival, as Camille Saint-Saëns shows his music. Initially, he meant The Carnival of the Animals as a joke: he wanted to make fun of his fellow musicians, popular tunes and even the pianists suffering from too much practice. His original intention turned into a unique carnival, and the universe of this work showcases extremely well how the double bass can imitate the elephant and how the tortoises dance in a can-can rhythm, evoking a smile on everyone's face.
The Series’ host:
Krisztián Horváth choral conductor, pianist, and composer
Krisztián will act as the host of all three concerts. The Pécs-based audience might be familiar with him as a choral conductor and pianist or might have encountered his name as the composer of musical theatre pieces. Many, however, are not aware that Krisztián is the head of an art school, and with his great sense of humour and casual style towards his students, he has been very successful as the host of numerous youth concerts. Let's welcome him as a new partner of the Pannon Philharmonic.
The book with the identical Hungarian title published by HVG Books comes to live in the Kodály Centre. It is worth buying it in our ticket office or on our webshop, then turning its pages, reading it and listening to the musical illustrations recorded by the Pannon Philharmonic. If you, however, long to experience something live, you are warmly welcome to three Fantastical Classical concerts in the Kodály Centre. This year, we will even have a Carnival concert! Although The Nutcracker is not part of the subscription, don’t miss it either!
As a subscription holder, you will have a 30% discount on the book purchased in the ticket office of the Kodály Center.
