Kodály Dances of Galanta
About the performance
Part concert, part guided-musical-journey; this is music education at its finest.
The first Ears Wide Open event for 2018 focuses on Dances of Galanta, a renowned orchestral work composed by Hungarian composer and ethnomusicologist Zoltán Kodály. This work uses motifs from the folk music of travelling bands from Kodály’s childhood and was composed for the 80th anniversary of the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra in 1933.
Always a sell-out, we recommend securing your seat as soon as possible.
