This video was made by yours truly on the occasion of the 50th year commemoration on Oct 23, 2006, of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution. It was put on by the Hungarian Society of Victoria with a climactic evening concert held at the Victoria Conservatory of Music.
Brahms' Hungarian Dance No.5 is the first piece that was performed by the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra, conducted by János Sándor.
The Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra was founded in 1986 by a distinguished British musician. It has thrived for the last 22 years, introducing young people to the master works of the symphonic repertoire.
Maestro János Sándor, its conductor that evening, graduated with distinction from the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest, Hungary. He has conducted Hungary's top symphony orchestras and appeared as a guest conductor in over twenty countries, made more than 30 recordings, and is the holder of two awards of merit from Hungary. He is also an honorary life member of the European Philharmonic Orchestra.
