The leading roles at this concert go to Ferenc Snétberger and the music of France, with the guitarist taking the stage to perform two different works. Accompanied by András Keller and Concerto Budapest, he will open the evening with the guitar concerto written by world-famous British jazz guitarist and composer John McLaughlin. Dubbed the "Mediterranean” concerto, this work from the mid-80's has never before been performed in Hungary. Snétberger will then proceed to play his own Rhapsody No. 3, a glimpse into his personal musical world, where the Roma tradition meets formal classical training, with the influence of flamenco and jazz also present in the mix.
In the first part of the concert, Darius Milhaud's popular and entertaining orchestral piece The Ox on the Roof represents the music of France and, to some degree, Brazil, since the title of the work refers to an old Brazilian tango. While Milhaud's work is linked to both Jean Cocteau and Charlie Chaplin, Paul Dukas took his inspiration from Goethe when composing his symphonic scherzo The Sorcerer's Apprentice. First premièred in 1897, the composition treats a ballad that the German giant wrote exactly a century earlier using musical notes to portray the novice warlock who brings a magic broom to life but then is unable to stop it.
