700 years from his death in 1321, when exiled in Ravenna from his beloved Florence, Dante still speaks to us. He speaks to the men and women of today, asking to be read and studied, but also to be listened to and imitated in his journey towards happiness, that is, the infinite and eternal Love of God. This is part of the message of the apostolic letter Pope Francis issued this March about one of the most influential European poets.
The Hungarian National Choir celebrates Dante’s legacy with the choral works of Hungarian and international composers, with four world premieres included in the programme. Most of the compositions were inspired by the Divine Comedy, while in the intervals Károly Mécs will recite some of Dante’s sonnets.
