Born in a small town in Wales on 17 February 1944, Sir Karl Jenkins is today one of the most frequently performed contemporary composers. Most of his pieces are oratorical works written to religious texts. The secret to his success is the tasteful and effective combination of differing musical styles. His best-known work (The Armed Man - A Mass for Piece) has been performed more than 2,000 times to date, and his Requiem, Ave verum, Cantata Memoria for the Children and Adiemus are also played regularly. In 2011, after receiving a commission from... Hungary, the composer composed a cantata to the text of János Arany's ballad The Bards of Wales, which was given its world première in Budapest. This celebratory concert will feature a selection of his best-known works, performed by the MÁV Symphony Orchestra and a mixed choir consisting of more than 150 singers.
