Six global guest artists, including Estonian legendary conductor Neeme Järvi revisiting Budapest after more than two decades, and Georgian pianist phenomenon Khatia Buniatishvili who has worked in partnership with Concerto Budapest for several years, feature in the season ticket concerts. As do the two magicians of the violin, Antje Weithaas and Charlotte Saluste-Bridoux, not to forget one of the most significant and multifaceted artists of European music, Heinz Holliger. Audiences have not one but two opportunities to meet him at season ticket recitals, both as conductor and instrumentalist. The list would not be complete without mentioning two pianists, Dénes Várjon and Zoltán Fejérvári, who regularly partner the orchestra, plus Zoltán Rácz, who among many other projects is preparing for a Steve Reich presentation in Hungary in January, and naturally the conductor of the first three concerts of the series, music director of Concerto Budapest, András Keller.
