Budapest Musical Performances

We had a lovely evening at a Budapest Gala Koncert. I heard a new musical instrument called the cimbalom, which is in the first photo. The musician was amazing. I was surprised by how many of the pieces I recognized.

 

We also attended a concert on New Years’s Eve of the Gypsy 100 Violins orchestra. It started with a set of traditional dances that included one in which the ladies danced with carafes on their heads. The orchestra played a variety of songs, many from Strauss. The main cimbalom player had a great solo.
