Mozart, Liszt or Gershwin performed by a symphony orchestra accompanied by the traditional Hungarian cimbalom (hammer dulcimer)?
It might sounds unusual to include a typical Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom to perform with a symphony orchestra, but in Hungary the beauty of this instrumental combination has been known since the 19th century. Join us for an unforgettable musical travel á la hongroise through the most beautiful classical melodies ever.
The Danube Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1961. Since then they have given many performances both in Hungary and abroad. The Chamber Orchestra consists of 20 professional musicians.
They have had international contacts since 1983 and have been invited to play in many foreign countries. They have often accompanied solo artists at music competitions and participated in colourful operettas, ballets and oratorio performances as well.
Not only do the musicians work together in this orchestra but in several chamber orchestras as well. Besides their permanent conductor András Deák, they are often conducted by other Hungarian and foreign conductors. Many Hungarian and foreign guest artists have performed with the orchestra, including Giuseppe di Stefano from Italy, James Galway, a flautist from Ireland and Ray Charles, the jazz star from the USA. They have given performances in Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy.
The program of the concert and the orchestra is expanded with a world-known typical Hungarian instrument Cimbalom (concert hammer dulcimer). This instrument is played primarily with beaters. It is equipped with a heavy frame for more dynamic power and many added string courses for an extended range of sounds and a damper pedal to allow more dynamic control.
Their permanent concert hall is the theatre of the Danube Palace.
Spend the first evening of the Christmas with our chamber concert organised in the beautiful neobaroque theatre of the Danube Palace. You can listen to a special programme which was compiled just for this evening by the Danube Chamber Orchestra, including well-known and popular works of famous composers.
The Chamber Concert starts at 20:00 on 25th of December, and it is 70 minutes without intermission.
