In this concert, the orchestra carry their audience into the world of ballads and imagination. The Ballad of László Fehér, for solo baritone and orchestra, was the young composer’s diploma project. The cantata is based on a folk ballad and reworks the story of the deception of horse thief László Fehér and his sister Anna, who stood by him. Bartók’s Cantata profana, based on Romanian folk poetry, is a tale about young men yearning for the purity of nature who step outside society and become enchanted stags. Symphonie fantastique is five-movement programme music in which the composer revives the dreamlike visions and imagined adventures of a young artist. The special feature of the piece is the presence of an idée fixe, an obsessively recurring musical theme constantly awakening new sensations and emotions in the listener.
