BFO in the community – Church concerts
About the program
For the Budapest Festival Orchestra, “music for all” is not an empty phrase, but a specific aim. The orchestra has recently organised a number of events where those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend the beautiful concerts of the Festival Orchestra in concert halls could also enjoy the magic of music. As part of the community programme, musicians visit Hungarian churches, where they primarily perform ecclesiastical music in an authentic environment to audiences who otherwise find it difficult to attend concerts. During Performances in churches – with so many impressive churches in Hungary – the BFO is keen to contribute to this extensive musical tradition and to return the works of Bach to the worthiest venues. Iván Fischer and the BFO have a long association with historical performances of early music. With the establishment of the BFO Baroque Ensemble it seems natural to initiate a project to perform Bach cantatas in churches using period instruments and techniques.
While the concert is free, there is limited capacity at the venue and so tickets have to be requested: email@example.com
