Composed deep within the heart of the continent, the music of Martinů, Ligeti and Haydn embodies the rich Sounds of Central Europe, the focus of our winter tour with François-Xavier Roth.
Great music’s essential qualities remain audible throughout the centuries. Listen out for Ligeti’s quicksilver shifts, Haydn’s effortless drive, and Martinů’s radiant intensity, a perfect outlet for the MCO’s agile and energetic approach.
Francois-Xavier Roth, a conductor who is always striving for new discoveries, has immersed the MCO in the music of this region over the last two years. This tour is the third installment of that collaboration.
