Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Two leading lights of Hungarian music life, Kossuth and Liszt Prize laureate Kristóf Baráti, and Anima Musicae Chamber Orchestra, winners of numerous competitions and holders of the National Youth Orchestra title, have made several joint stage appearances. In the latest station of their burgeoning artistic relationship, they perform classics by ‘The Three Bs’, that is, Beethoven, Brahms and – instead of Bach – Béla Bartók. Beethoven’s violin romances, as solo instrumental pieces with orchestral accompaniment, fit the concerto works; however, their lyrical, calm tones and sweeping melodies provide a far lighter musical experience. After these, the string orchestral work of Bartók, a composition that has become emblematic, and in which the orchestra step beyond their role as accompanist, offers a major contrast. This continues in the second half of the concert, in which the orchestra perform Symphony No. 4 by Brahms, the sombre and grandiose, most masterful of his works paying tribute to Baroque traditions.
