We would like, even during this extraordinary situation, for the Müpa Budapest audience to still be able to encounter the world's most outstanding and thrilling artists each evening - this time in their own homes. It is precisely for this reason that we will open Müpa Budapest's virtual concert hall and auditoriums - each night at the familiar times - by providing access to a single unforgettable performance from past years.
The performance will be broadcasted on our website and YouTube channel.
Schubert's Symphony No. 5 is a candid acknowledgement of the process of entering adulthood. It condenses youthful emotions into melodies and is far removed from the composer's later transcendent and elevated tone. The emphasis in the three lieder that follow this is on Schubert's personal journey and rom...antic emotional world. In the spirit of brightness found in the works in major keys by the "peaceful Romantics”, the evening closes with Mahler's Symphony No. 4. This work is noted primarily for its gentle tone and the soprano solo of the fourth movement - the latter presenting a child's characteristically naive vision of heaven.
This recording was made at the concert held at Müpa Budapest on 9 March 2016.
