Due to its informal, homely location, the Cupola Hall concert was one of the most special and intimate events of the kamara.hu series last year. This year, Izabella Simon and Dénes Várjon have come up with another exciting and varied programme from light Mendelssohn works to intense Kurtág movements in the very same venue. The two concert pieces by Mendelssohn start and end the event. The soloistic works for piano, clarinet and (uniquely in his oeuvre) basset-horn are playful and full of fantasy, not to mention that they were created in return for delicious meals. While some cooked and baked, Mendelssohn composed. The Schumann work and Kurtág’s Hommage à Robert Schumann sit in the centre of the programme. The former was originally called Evening Songs. Schumann’s famous personalities appear in the sudden and sharp mood shifts, just like with Kurtág, who makes specific reference to Florestan and Eusebius. Motifs of night and farewell also feature in the six-movement homage that pays tribute to Schumann also in its harmonization.
