Ulster Orchestra - Hungarian Spice
Nuno Coelho - Conductor
Weber - Overture: Oberon
Bartók - Divertimento
Brahms - Hungarian Dances Nos.1, 3 & 10
This concert may start in Baghdad (the setting for Weber’s Oberon), but is definitely flavoured with Hungarian spice. Bartók’s Divertimento is shot through with melody and rhythms derived from the Hungarian folk music he loved, while Brahms’s lively dances are settings of Hungarian themes.
