A Musical Journey with the Orient Express

Musica Mundana presented a classical-world music program with narration, inspired by the journey of the famous Orient Express train that traveled between Paris and Istanbul at the end of the 19 century. The performance consisted of works from major capitals like Istanbul, Bucharest, Budapest, Vienna, and Paris following the train’s route, such as the Czigane music from Monti, arias from Lehar’s operettas, folk and dance music from Rumania and Budapest, Hungarian Rhapsodies by Brahms and Liszt, tangos and waltzes from Parisian composers like Debussy, Stravinsky and Satie, as well as premieres from the Ottoman Court and Turkish composers such as Cemal R. Rey and E. Zeki Un.
