Christmas Chamber Concert
Christmas Chamber Concert of the
Danube Chamber Orchestra
Spend the Christmas evening (25th of December) with our chamber concert organised in the beautiful neobaroque theatre of the Danube Palace. You can listen to a special programme which was compiled just for this evening by the Danube Chamber Orchestra, including well-known and popular works of famous composers.
The Chamber Concert starts at 20:00, and it is twice 40-45 minutes with an intermission.
The Danube Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1961. Since then they have given many performances both in Hungary and abroad. The Chamber Orchestra consists of 20 professional musicians.
Their repertoire covers almost every musical style from the Baroque music to music of the 20th century. Their permanent concert hall is the theatre of the Danube Palace, Budapest (Duna Palota; Zrínyi utca 5.) Apart from the concerts they organize both for adults and children, they regularly play at various musical events held in Budapest. They are frequent guests at the Music Academy, at the Vigadó, at the Stephanie Palace and at the Convention Centre.
They have had international contacts since 1983 and have been invited to play in many foreign countries. They have often accompanied solo artists at music competitions and participated in colourful operettas, ballets and oratorio performances as well.
Not only do the musicians work together in this orchestra but in several chamber orchestras as well. Besides their permanent conductor András Deák, they are often conducted by other Hungarian and foreign conductors. Many Hungarian and foreign guest artists have performed with the orchestra, including Giuseppe di Stefano from Italy, James Galway, a flautist from Ireland and Ray Charles, the jazz star from the USA. They have given performances in Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy.
