Immerse yourself in the folk cultures of Eastern Europe. Explore the gritty, rustic and evocative music of the original folk collector Béla Bartók in Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. We evoke the spirit of Romania in Ligeti’s full-blooded Concert românesc.

Discover A Hawk and A Hacksaw. An American duo, with cimbalom maestro Balázs Unger as special guest, they seek to create and document an ecstatic sound much like the village bands of old where the communal aspect of folk tradition is the key factor. They will weave their music into Bartók’s Three Village Scenes.

Experience something new when BBC Concert Orchestra and A Hawk and A Hacksaw come together to perform a brand new piece written specially for their combined forces in a unique collaboration.
