CONDUCTOR

Róbert Farkas
Deniz Uzun is a singer of Turkish origin, who was raised in Germany and won a special prize at the Éva Marton International Singing Competition in Budapest in 2021. She studied in Mannheim and Heidelberg, then in Bloomington, USA, and is now a frequent guest singer in the world's major opera houses and concert halls, with an impressive repertoire. In this concert, Uzun will sing a song cycle composed by the young for the extraordinary poems of a contemporary poet, Tristan Klingsor. The concert will be conducted by the orchestra's chief conductor, Róbert Farkas, who has put together a program from pieces with French relevance. Haydn composed his six "Paris Symphonies" in 1784, receiving a "commission" from Paris. The second movement of Symphony No. 85 in B flat major is a variation of a well-known French folk song. Ravel composed his songs to French, and the two popular orchestral pieces in the second half of the program are perhaps the best-known and most popular works of French music.
