This year, GCSE and IB Music students have been invited to participate in the BISB Concert Club, so they can explore the vibrant performing arts scene here in Budapest. Last Monday 15 students, along with Mr Jackson and Ms Lovig, attended a concert by the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra at the Erkel Theatre. This concert was chosen specifically because it featured the music of Hungarian composer, Zoltan Kodaly. IB Music students all over the world are studying Kodaly’s “Dances of Galanta” this year, and for the next two years. Even the GCSE Music students who were not yet familiar with the work enjoyed hearing the piece, with its dramatic interpretations of folk melodies. The concert also featured several of Kodaly’s arrangements of Hungarian folk songs and the beautiful “Budavari Te Deum” that featured the Philharmonic Orchestra and a choir of over 80 people. For a little sample of this great Hungarian composer’s work, listen here.

The next Concert Club event is on 19th May, when we are going to hear the world-famous British organist, Cameron Carpenter, and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields chamber orchestra.
