We're broadcasting this performance live!
In spite of the fact that the current extraordinary situation prevents us all from meeting at Müpa Budapest in person, we would still like to make the coming days nicer and more uplifting. This is why we are going to transmit our live performance, without an audience, on our website, Facebook page and YouTube channel.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event, through your screen!
The performance will be broadcasted on our website, Facebook-page and YouTube channel.
The Fifth Symphony occupies an exceptional place among Schubert's youthful symphonic works. Its brevity and concentration are a telling example of a feeling for classical proportions. First premièred in 1816, the symphony is... one of the few pieces of Schubert's that the composer actually got to hear played, but as with most of his works, the first public performance took place only well after his death.
Carl Maria von Weber's opera Der Freischütz was a sudden huge success after its 1821 world première, and not only in German-speaking regions: it literally swept across Europe. In contrast to the dominant style of Italian and French opera, Weber was writing music in a completely new language here, and it is no coincidence that the work became a symbol of German national consciousness.
In his travels around Italy, Mendelssohn visited Venice and Florence, met Berlioz in Rome, as well as Donizetti in Naples and Glinka in Milan. Not long afterwards, he immortalised his experiences in a symphony - which is how the work got its name.
