Last year an impressive selection of the vocal works Béla Faragó composed between 1985–2009 was released on a CD. At this concert, two of the longer cycles will be performed. Dustball Songs and Dances collects the choruses of the composer’s opera, Metamorphosis, which was written after Franz Kafka’s novella of the same title. “The twelve movements of the choral suite represent not only the plot of the opera, but the way or path as well that the human voice has covered in the course of human culture’s evolution, through the different periods of musical history. To this end, I used different singing styles and voice techniques, from Gregorian chant, through madrigal, bel canto, and folk voicings, to noises and body sounds.” (Béla Faragó) In the second part of the concert, a now-classic work of 20th-century vocal literature, Luciano Berio’s cycle of songs for texts in different languages will be performed.

Tickets are available for 2000 HUF on the spot,
