Budapest Festival Orchestra

Iván Fischer conducts Enescu, Stravinsky, and Prokofiev — With Vilde Frang Budapest Festival Orchestra

About

Live from the Müpa Budapest, the incredible Iván Fischer joins forces once again with the famed Budapest Festival Orchestra, an ensemble he co-founded in 1983 that has flourished under his leadership into one of the world's preeminent orchestras. They begin the evening with George Enescu’s Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 in A Major, the composer's best-known work, lively and brimming with traditional Romanian rhythms. Virtuoso violinist Vilde Frang then makes her entrance to perform Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto, a work that notably inspired two ballets by the great George Balanchine. The concert ends in fireworks with Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony, one of the composer’s wartime masterpieces, written in just a month in 1944 and intended to represent "a hymn to free and happy Man, to his mighty powers, his pure and noble spirit."
