Outside Hungary it sounds unusual to include a typical Hungarian folk instrument, the cimbalom to perform with a symphony orchestra, but in Hungary the beauty of this instrumental combination has been known since the 19th century. Join us for an unforgettable musical travel á la hongroise through the most beautiful classical melodies ever.

The Danube Symphony Orchestra was formed in 1961. And since then they have given many performances both in Hungary and abroad. Their repertoire covers almost every musical style from the Baroque music to music of the 20th century. They perform the most famous classical melodies combined with typical Hungarian instrument, the Cimbalom (Hummer Dulcimer). It is a unique opportunity to hear most popular masterpieces of classical music interpreted by cimbalom and symphonic orchestra in a virtuous way which can be enjoyed only in Hungary.

Besides their permanent conductor András Deák, they are often conducted by other Hungarian and foreign conductors. They have given performances in Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy. The program of the concert and the orchestra is expanded with a world-known typical Hungarian instrument Cimbalom (concert hammer dulcimer). This instrument is played primarily with beaters. It is equipped with a heavy frame for more dynamic power and added many strings courses for an extended range of sounds and a damper pedal to allow more dynamic control.

Through the instrument combination of a cimbalom and a symphonic orchestra you can enjoy the most famous classical melodies in impressive Hungarian style.

Every concert starts at 20.00, and consists of two parts, 40-45 minutes each, plus an intermission.
