Featuring lively rhythms, Hungarian folk melodies and brilliant orchestration, Kodály’s Dances of Galánta takes the audience on a journey through time to the heart of the rustic, preindustrial village of Galánta. On the podium, conductor and Artistic Partner to the Orchestre Métropolitain Nicolas Ellis will also be leading Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, the composer’s swan song. At once powerful and ethereal, the piece was written by the Russian composer while he was in exile.
