The Franz Liszt Symphony Orchestra of Sopron is to be performing at the Franz Liszt Conference and Cultural Center in Sopron on November 6 as the second event of our Franz Liszt Season Ticket Series. Program includes a witty orchestral suite called "The Comedians" by Dmitry Kabalevsky, and Johan Nepomuk Hummel's popular trumpet concerto in E flat major, featuring Balázs Winkler as soloist. The orchestral version of Czech composer Bedrich Smetana's string quartet subtitled "From my Life" will conclude the evening's program, conducted by Péter Kóczán.
A day later, on November 7 we invite you to the Old Evangelical Church in Győr to a 7pm concert subtitled "Baroque Masters". The Győr Chamber Orchestra this time has selected well-known masterpieces like Vivaldi's "Four Seasons", played by Éva Lukács, Boglárka Juhász-Molnár, Márton Vörösvári, and Antal Zalai, respectively.

GYŐR PHILHARMONIC ENDS FAR EAST TOUR IN TOKIO

Following the Tuesday concert in Seoul, the Győr Philharmonic Orchestra is now already at its last stop in Tokio, Japan, to conclude its three-week-long Far East tour. Our orchestra's presence there is of extraordinary importance as the two countries had in 2019 reached their 150th anniversary of their thriving cultural, economical, and diplomatic relations. That point is adequately proved if we cite here the fact that GYPO's current artistic director, and tour conductor, Kálmán Berkes, had been employed as guest professor by the Musashino Academy of Music in Tokio for 25 years. Thanks to this cooperation Japanese musicians appear increasingly year after year in GYPO. Prior to the last concert on Thursday at the abovementioned institute, a statuette of the great Hungarian composer, Franz Liszt, is going to formally be unveiled. The work of sculptor Ferenc Lebó is a gift by the Győr Phil and is set to be permanently displayed outside the building.
