In his composition based on jazz music and repetitive elements, Benedek Tóth mixes the following elements: choir tones, harmony sounded by percussion instruments, the soloistic role of classical musical instruments including flutes and clarinets, as well as bass guitars and a drum base.
J. S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D Major will be played with accompaniment by a string orchestra and in different adaptations to piano, flute and vibraphon.
The concert concludes with adaptations of two famous songs by jazz fusion band Weather Report.
