Event Details

Hellensmusic Hungarian Rhapsody

Leading Hungarian composers are showcased in this programme. The multi-faceted five-movement Serenade for String Trio by the young Dohnányi has Magyar elements but the composer’s roots are embedded in German romanticism.

The music of Bartók and Kodály, however, is steeped in Hungarian folk music, a life-long preoccupation for them both. In Kodály’s Adagio, sonorous harmonies on the piano wonderfully complement the viola’s heartfelt melody. Bartók’s Contrasts, in which two dances flank a movement entitled ‘Relaxation’, is variegated, exploring the different timbres of clarinet, violin and piano. The concert ends with Bartok’s youthful and colourful Piano Quintet, a fascinating blend of old and new, mercifully rescued from obscurity.

Discover Ledbury

Visit Ledbury a Herefordshire market town, lying east of Hereford, and west of the Malvern Hills. It has a significant number of timber-framed structures, in particular along Church Lane and High Street. One of the most outstanding is the Market House, built in 1617, located in the town centre.
