Hommage à Kodály Zoltán

Dance Canon – Hommage à Zoltán Kodály

Performance by Hungarian State Folk Ensemble

Zoltán Kodály’s compositions and folk songs he collected form the musical frame of the story that emerges from the happenings of an imaginary village community. The scenes depict the birth and loss of human relations, the joys and the sorrows, the ritual of everyday routine.
Through a series of richly nuanced, lyrical-associative images, stage action that playfully alternates places and times, we reach the denouement, the cathartic declaration of the glory of human life.
The production is animated by excerpts from such well-known and popular works of Kodály as Háry János, Dances of Galánta, the Peacock Variations, Mátra Pictures, and Dance from Kálla.
