The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

Domonkos Csabay (piano)

Music is arguably the ideal “means of transport” for imaginary journeys. Beethoven, for example, never set foot on Polish or Turkish soil, but that did not prevent him from writing a polonaise or a Turkish march. He may, however, have drawn direct inspiration for his Hungarian-influenced pieces from his travels in Buda and from his Hungarian friends. Domonkos Csabay’s geographically varied concert programme begins with Beethoven’s lesser-heard but highly exhilarating compositions, before taking us to places such as a seaside resort in England, where the barely 20-year-old Benjamin Britten kept a musical diary of morning swims, sailing and all the other pre-war summer pastimes. The northern landscapes are a real treat, this time with a piano version of Sibelius’ sublime symphonic poem. The Viennese mood is lifted by Ravel’s famous dance fantasy, and the programme concludes with a virtuoso piece by Zoltán Kodály, reminiscent of Székely-Hungarian folk melodies.
