Returning at the invitation of András Keller will be one of the most beloved and significant guests to ever grace Hungary’s concert halls, Evgeni Koroliov, whom we will welcome back alongside his partner in both life and in two-piano performances, Ljupka Hadzigeorgieva. On this occasion, these two marvellous musicians will play two selections from the set of keyboard concertos that make up such an outstanding part of Bach’s oeuvre, both of them C minor works that pose an enthralling puzzle for musicologists and never fail to delight the audience. “I wrote them in such a way as to be brilliant, without being vapid, and so that connoisseurs and the less learned alike can find satisfaction, in short, so that everyone can find in them what they seek.” This is how Mozart described the piano concertos he composed for his Viennese subscription concerts, of which we will hear one of the most noteworthy, the No. 23 in A major completed in March 1786. András Keller has already done a great deal to introduce Hungarians to the works of Anton Bruckner, who has been somewhat neglected in this country. Now, in the year of the bicentenary of Bruckner’s birth, he will conduct his orchestra in the composer’s ‘Lyric’ Seventh Symphony, dedicated to King Ludwig II of Bavaria and lamenting the loss of Richard Wagner.
