Online: Liszt-Berlioz Marathon @ Palace Of Arts, 6 February
From Mupa: Liszt and Berlioz were not just contemporaries and rivals – two 19th century Romantics – but also friends and brothers-at-arms.

Just like in the past, with Schumann and Mendelssohn, Debussy and Ravel, we will now present Liszt and Berlioz's works together to our audience as part of Müpa Budapest and the Budapest Festival Orchestra's incredibly popular composer marathon.

Müpa Budapest and the Budapest Festival Orchestra's composer marathon will present an extraordinarily varied selection from their two exceptional oeuvres, featuring a range of different perspectives.

You can listen to solo piano concerts, a concerto concert for two pianos and an introductory storytelling matinée for children.

There will be a performance of two of Liszt's piano concertos and his symphonic poem Prometheus, as well as Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique and his "viola concerto in disguise" Harold en Italie, which was written at the behest of Paganini.

You can take a peek into Liszt's workshop as a choral composer, and even enjoy jazz covers of a selection of works from the two composers.
