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.

Way to Music

Danubia Orchestra Óbuda

Magda/Smetana/Prokofiev

Smetana: Má vlast (My homeland) – Vltava (The Moldau)
Dávid Magda: Remembrance
Vivaldi: Flute Concerto in G minor, RV 439 (ʻLa notte’)
Vivaldi: Flute Concerto in D major, RV 428 (ʻIl gardellinoʼ)
Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, Op. 100

János Bálint (flute)
Danubia Orchestra Óbuda
Conductor: Oliver von Dohnányi

The first part starts with the flute, and ends with it as well – although in one we hear it coming from the orchestra, and in the other from front of stage. The instrument can do everything in profundity and heights, just as Prokofiev ploughed everything he learnt from Romanticism into his own half-Russian, half-European world; moreover, it is perhaps his finest symphony.
