In 1923, when Budapest wanted to commemorate the 50th anniversary of its own birth – the unification of Pest, Buda, and Óbuda in 1873 – three of the most important Hungarian composers of the time were asked to create the programme for the celebratory concert. Béla Bartók's Dance Suite will be staged this season, while Ernő Dohnányi's Festival Overture with two and three orchestras was performed at the reopening of the Opera House. Now it's time for the largest-scale work of all, Zoltán Kodály's cantata Psalmus Hungaricus, which was last performed by the OPERA ensembles in the summer of 2011 at the ancient castle of Savonlinna in Finland. This time, it will be performed in the grand Locomotive Hall of the Eiffel Art Studios by a huge orchestra and the full 160-member choir. The OPERA Orchestra will add more colours with the popular Dances of Galánta, the Choir with a piece for mixed choruses by Kodály and the grand opus Laudes organi, the final work of his life.

Zoltán Kodály:
Angels and Shepherds
Hymn to King Saint Stephen
Laudes organi
Dances of Galánta
Psalmus Hungaricus

Featuring the Hungarian State Opera Orchestra, Chorus, and Children's Chorus
Conductor: Nikolett Hajzer, Dániel Erdélyi, Gábor Csiki, Ádám Medveczky, Tamás Pál
