Season ticket holders are promised audience-pleasing performance artists and hit numbers at these five Müpa Budapest concerts. For example, concert pianist Mikhail Pletnev plays and conducts Bach and Mozart, András Keller and Anna Vinnitskaya take to the stage with the second piano concerto by Brahms, and for the opening work on the very first recital of the series we have one of the favourite movements of 20th century music, Mahler’s Adagietto. We would not be much mistaken in saying that the title of this season ticket series could also be interpreted as Concerto Budapest and their superb guest list directing our attention towards their favourite pieces. Thus we have Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica focusing on Schnittke and Weinberg, György Vashegyi – in a concert dedicated to the memory of Annie Fischer – taking on Missa solemnis, a difficult-to-scale peak of the Beethoven oeuvre, and on the final evening of the series, András Keller reveals (as he has done in so many memorable performances) the qualities of Shostakovich. And, of course, attention is also directed towards the soloist for this concert, violinist Sergei Krylov, who plays together with Concerto Budapest for the first time.
