Concert by Budafoki Dohnányi Ernő Symphony Orchestra and Budapest Academy Choral Society

This concert will surely bring an intimate, loving and real Advent mood to our audience. Famous and popular melodies of the Advent period will be performed ranging from Baroque to contemporary music.

Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker has become an indispensable part of Advent and Christmas concerts and this concert features The Nutcracker’s Suite. American composer Christopher Rouse’s piece entitled Karolju pays homage to different nations’ Christmas vocal songs. Bach’s Magnificat in E-flat Major tells the tale of the Virgin Mary presented by the Gospel of Luke. The relationship between Christmas and this musical composition is further reinforced by the fact that Magnificat features four Christmas adorations songs.
