Mikhail Pletnev became famous as a virtuoso pianist about four and a half decades ago. However, he has also been internationally acknowledged as a conductor and composer for some time. On this occasion, the audience will encounter the Russian musician as a conductor and composer who is a regular returning guest of Concerto Budapest.
The programme for this concert consists of pieces from two maestros from Russian music history. The protagonists are musicians who would be able to make the concert of the Liszt Academy a real festivity on their own: they are Mihail Pletnev, who will be conducting on this occasion, and pianist Zoltán Fejérvári.
The focus of the concert is Focus itself, that is, the Hungarian premiere of Péter Eötvös’s concerto for Saxophone, which he completed in 2021. The title refers to film-making: the “sound camera” changes focus between the soloist in close-ups and the orchestra in the background like the camera does in films.
