A range of grand masterpieces, a true music historical overview from Bach to Ligeti and the presence of the season's prevailing themes will dominate the series, ranging from the opening concerto to Hungarian Gems, the already established Christmas concert and the Romantic French opera gala conducted by György Vashegyi. In the spirit of the above, the programme, also offering a premiere, features the performances of nearly all of the season's international and Hungarian guest artists: Dezső Ránki, Nikolai Lugansky, Kristóf Baráti, Barnabás Kelemen, Lucas Debargue, Jonathan Biss, Dénes Várjon and Izabella Simon as well as the two soloists of Bluebeard’s Castle, Gábor Bretz and Szilvia Vörös.
This subscription series has traditionally been generous: with concerts, masterpieces and outstanding musicians. This season, it will also be the case, since in the Grand Hall of the Liszt Academy, at the 7+1 concerts of the series, we can welcome such musicians as Mikhail Pletnev and Oksana Lyniv or three world-famous pianists, Lucas Debargue, Nikolai Lugansky and Jonathan Biss. From the ranks of the most prominent Hungarian musicians, we can enjoy the performances of Kristóf Baráti and Mihály Berecz. The concerts range from Bach and Mozart to Bartók and Ligeti. Our subscription holders can also relish a now traditional late-night premiere as the series' special gift.
The most cherished cornerstones of the concert repertoire, audience favourites and their chosen masterpieces waiting to be discovered will be presented in Müpa for the four nights of this rich and thrilling series. The first night will delight the audience with Brahms' two masterpieces under György Vashegyi's baton. The series will then continue with Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto in B-flat major, the latter interpreted by Mikhail Pletnev. At the third concert, András Keller will give the floor to Peter Eötvös on the podium, who will conduct his own Respond as well as works by Wagner and Ives. Finally, Pletnev will stand at the head of the orchestra conducting a unique Sibelius-Rachmaninov-Skriabin compilation in collaboration with the teenage violinist, known best for the talent show Virtuosos, Amira Abouzahra.
Popular and lesser-known 19th, 20th and 21st-century Hungarian compositions will feature again this season within the framework of Concerto Budapest's already established Vigadó series. The concerts will present works ranging from the contemporary composer Judit Varga's kinetic Beethoven-hommage to the Dante Symphony closing the fourth night, under the batons of Tibor Bogányi, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Domonkos Héja and János Kovács. Beyond the giants of music history, works by Dohnányi, Lajtha and Kodály's student, János Viski, will also feature on the programme. None other than the celebrated cellist, Miklós Perényi, will interpret Viski's Cello Concerto. Besides him, such artists will reveal to us the gems of our musical heritage as the trumpeter, Gábor Boldoczki, the precussionists Zoltán Rácz and Boglárka Fábry (at the closing concert of the series) and three excellent pianists, János Balázs, Fülöp Ránki Fülöp and Mihály Berecz.
Concerto Budapest's beloved Manó Series is dedicated to kindergarten and young primary school children: the playful and interactive performances allow the youngsters to become familiar with the foundations of music. In the coming season, the series will undertake a four-concert excursion to the millennia-old history of music with the help of the host Gábor Iván.
Our Soundtrap Series is devoted to primary school children of 8 to 12 years who are happy to undertake a discovery trip in the world of music. Still, of course, their parents, guardians or younger siblings will also have lots of fun at the series' concerts. The pianist, Izabella Simon, also acting as editor and host, builds each of the three shows around a separate storyline.
