Budapest Festival Orchestra @ The Music Center at Strathmore

“Thought-provoking and exhilaratingly enjoyable” – The Guardian (five-star review)

Returning to Washington under the baton of former NSO principal conductor Iván Fischer, known to D.C. audiences as “a meticulous musician [with] an anarchic disdain for decorum” (New Yorker), the Budapest Festival Orchestra presents a novel program that pairs mainstays of the Mahler and Dvořák catalogues with underexposed works by the two late-Romantic composers. The “expressive colours” (BBC Music Magazine) of German contralto Gerhild Romberger bring to life the powerful emotions of Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder.

This performance is made possible through the generous support of Betsy and Robert Feinberg; Dr. Gary Mather and Ms. Christina Co Mather; and the Dallas Morse Coors Foundation.
