With the blue Danube flowing between the mighty cities of Buda and Pest, and its blend of Western European and Gypsy cultures, Hungary is a powerful inspiration for artists whose imaginations were captured by its romantic beauty. Hungary’s greatest classical composers Frank Lizst, with his famous “Hungarian Rhapsody,” and Béla Bartók, who wrote “Hungarian Sketches,” were inspired by their country’s folk traditions and thrilling Gypsy melodies as was Johannes Brahms with his “Hungarian Dances.”
Another of Hungary’s most well-known composers, Zoltán Kodály took traditional folk music as the basis for an opera about a veteran, Háry János, who tells tall tales. Joined by the world-renowned Gypsy
violinist Roby Lakatos and The Roby Lakatos Ensemble, the Cape Symphony explores the rich culture and traditions of Hungary.
