“Marvelous – crackling with dancing that snaps like a whip. They are terrific.” —_New York Times _

Description

Two different musical ensembles reverberate with the folk music that inspired Liszt, Bartók and Kodály. The members of the Folk Orchestra play authentic, traditional instruments and perform Hungarian music at an artistic level equal to any classical orchestra, while the famous Gipsy Orchestra marries music and dance in a way that enlivens the room and draws cheering audiences to their feet.
