Quarantine soirées: on-line live from the Budapest Festival Orchestra

With the worldwide musical shutdown beginning to bite, some organisations are going on-line. From tonight, 16 March 2020, conductor Ivan Fischer and the Budapest Festival Orchestra (BFO) are presenting nightly quarantine soirées at 19:45 local time (an hour ahead of the UK). Tonight's concert, presented live from the BFO's rehearsal room, will feature music by Saint-Saens and Villa-Lobos, plus Beethoven's String Quartet No. 4 in C minor, Op.19 and folk music.

If you do decide to watch one of the concerts, please do think about contributing to the orchestra's costs, via their donate link.

For full details of the nightly live streams, see the BFO's website.
