Beethoven: Egmont- overture
Kodály: Peacock-variation
Liszt: Les Preludes

Conductor: János Kovács

The Egmont Overture became one of the symbols of the 1956 Revolution and War of Independence. The overture is called Egmont
part of the accompanying music he wrote for Goethe’s play by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). The characteristically dashed motif of the tragic, sonata-shaped slow introduction, composed in F minor, serves to accelerate
as a side topic. At the end of the accompaniment to the heroic struggle for freedom, it is accompanied by monotonous drumming
Egmont to the point of loss as well. The surprise comes after the shocked pause that marked the count’s death. As a code for the overture, a
work’s triumphant “Symphony of Victory” in F major, anticipating the positive ending of the drama. Zoltán Kodály (1882-1967) composed Ady’s poem for men in 1937. The orchestral work is actually a further development of it. The number of Peacock Variations is sixteen, during which a wide variety of characters march in – a series of episodes lyrical, dancing, mourning-like, restrained, or just glowing with romantic passion. In the concluding phase of the work, the triumphant return of the folk song theme clearly suggests that the “liberation of poor prisoners” will eventually become a reality. Les Préludes is the most famous symphonic poem of Ferenc Liszt (1811-1886). Liszt’s symphonic poem is a “four-movement” work grouped into one movement. He took a simple melody, consisting of a few sounds
a motif that he used over and over again, changing the rhythm, tempo, a few notes, or the mode of play, and built each theme from that basic motif. The introduction shows mortal man, the second part depicts cloudless love happiness, the third illustrates the storms of life, the fourth illustrates the atmosphere of escape to nature, and finally the last part concludes with a picture of struggle and an epilogue.
