As befits a finale, the closing concert of kamara.hu makes several back references to the unifying concepts of earlier concerts in this festival. The opening novel of In Search of Lost Time, just as the first concert of the festival, is characterized by recollections of childhood, therefore youth receives an important place in the final recital, too. The youthful work of Dohnányi draws on the style of Brahms. Schumann tales – occasionally rhapsodic, but extremely expressive movements without concrete narrative – are positioned between the two pieces. Pieces by contemporaries of Proust are played, among them works by Reynaldo Hahn, his partner, again revealing one of the most intimate forms of chamber music, the song. The Ravel work that opens the concert, an ancient Jewish prayer and Yiddish folk song, is the musical evocation of the Jewish heritage of Proust that he refused to acknowledge in his novel. Like a circle, the concert, and thus the festival as well, closes at its starting point – and yet, nothing is the same any more.
