Third Orchestra Season, 2017, Teatro Degollado


We are about to witness the homecoming of a talented Jalisco native whose debut with the OFJ took place at the age of nine (playing Mozart).  On this occasion, however, Daniela Liebman will interpret a daring work, brimming with fire and virtuosity, the Concerto No.1 for piano and orchestra by Franz Lizst, a composer whose works epitomize Hungarian tradition, the topic of this, our “Hungarian Impressions” program.

Along with Liszt, Johannes Brahms contributed mightily to Hungarian nationalism with his Hungarian Dances, originally written for piano four hands.  Of these dances, we will hear numbers 1,4,6,7 and—of course—the world-famous Hungarian Dance No. 5.

The program will open and close with two essential Hungarian suites from the scenic arts (the world of opera and ballet):  Zoltán Kodaly´s Háry János, and The Miraculous Mandarin by Béla Bártok.
