UMS: All Dvořák Concert with the Budapest Festival Orchestra

All Dvořák Concert: Budapest Festival Orchestra

Thursday, February 20 // 7:30 pm
Hill Auditorium

The “consistently glorious” Budapest Festival Orchestra (New York Times) and Iván Fischer are known for fresh, surprising performances of well-loved works.

This all-Dvořák event includes a concerto performed by daring French violinist Renaud Capuçon in his UMS debut and a radiant symphony in a thrilling, folk-inspired program that includes some rarely-heard gems — in short, a program that promises to enchant aficionados and newcomers alike, especially with the fantastic musicians of the Budapest Festival Orchestra on stage. “[Capuçon’s] equal is hard to find among violinists today.” (The Guardian)
