...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

The libretto of Carl Maria von Weber’s three-act opera Euryanthe was written on the basis of a 13th century French legend. The story transports us to the world of knights and court ladies, with the focus on the love of Adolar and Euryanthe. The young couple have to undergo many trials and tribulations before they are finally united in love in the finale. This recital features the opera overture performed by Dohnányi Orchestra Budafok. ▪ Canadian-born Aharon Harlap is one of the best-known Israeli composers of our day. Hungarian audiences heard the award-winning Clarinet Concerto (conducted by the composer) performed by Dohnányi Orchestra in Hungary in 2001. Now the work is played by the ensemble and Bence Szepesi, solo clarinettist of the orchestra. The concert closes with Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2 that premièred in 1908.
