A Swiss-French music experience in MÜPA with Zugló Philharmonic

Sunday, 08.12.2019 – Sunday, 08.12.2019


Of the three French composers whose works are being performed at this concert on December 8, Ernest Chausson and André Caplet enjoyed close friendships with Claude Debussy, and the style of the third, Swiss-French Arthur Honegger, was strongly influenced by the impressionist master. Apart from the music, however, they also have something else in common: all three had some connection to a means of transportation, as Caplet was born on a boat, Chausson died in a bicycle accident, and Honegger was a train enthusiast. With the approach of Christmas, the Zugló Philharmonic's programme for this concert is aimed at deepening the anticipation of Advent.
