Concert Details

Saint-SaënsDanse macabre
LisztFantasy on Hungarian Folk Songs
TchaikovskyOrchestral Suite No. 3

Franz Liszt’s Dance of Death and Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre are Romantic-era thrillers connected to Gothic literary themes. Prepare to be spooked! Pianist József Balog performs Liszt’s relatively seldom-heard Fantasy on Hungarian Folk Songs – actually a captivating piano-orchestral arrangement of one of his famed Hungarian Rhapsodies. We know Tchaikovsky as one of the great symphonists, but he also composed several extended suites for symphony orchestra. The concert closes with the third of these, full of vibrant melody and charm.
