- Bartók Spring
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
The exciting musical fabric of the performance consists not only of folk songs, religious folk tunes and dance music, but also the Easter-themed songs of the Roman Catholic, Protestant, Greek Catholic and Orthodox churches, as well as archaic folk prayers. Most of the latter are rooted in the distant past, the time before the conversion to Christianity.
This performance of the Bartók Spring was presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with Hungarian Heritage House - Hungarian State Folk Ensemble.
