The first half of the concert will be unorthodox in format, with the orchestra juxtaposing the original folk music collected by Bartók with the composerʼs own compositions, according to mupa.hu. The program will include Bartókʼs “Romanian Folk Dances” and “Bluebeard’s Castle,” alongside Hungarian folk songs.
The event features Márta Sebestyén (vocal), Viktória Vizin (mezzo-soprano) and Krisztián Cser (bass).
The same program will also feature at a repeat matinée performance on Saturday, March 23, from 3.30 p.m.
