The name of this season ticket says it all. Accordingly, there will be no lack of brilliance and extraordinary, incandescent talent at the Liszt Academy concerts in which works by Bartók, Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Berg, indeed Tchaikovsky and Schnittke, are performed by such luminaries such as Evgeni Koroliov, Gidon Kremer, Khatia and Gvantsa Buniatishvili, Christian Tetzlaff, Thomas Zehetmair and Elisabeth Leonskaja, not forgetting some of our home-grown prides: Miklós Perényi, Máté Szűcs, Mihály Berecz Jnr., and last but not least, Keller Quartet. Concerto Budapest’s regular partners and returning guests, favourites of the local audience, take to the stage of the Liszt Academy at these season ticket concerts; this time, the composer of the Premiere concert is one of our close acquaintances: we have the opportunity of an exclusive first meeting with the works of Gábor Csalog in this hugely promising programme.
Its magnitude is greatness itself: perhaps this is one way of summing up this season’s ensemble offer for the Volumes season ticket, which promises an experience-rich meeting in the Liszt Academy with the likes of string artists Gidon Kremer, Sergei Krilov, Thomas Zehetmair and Keller Quartet as well as the pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja, and not one but two Buniatishvilis, Khatia and her sister Gvantsa. Masterpieces of Romanticism dominate the season ticket concert programmes; that said, there is still room to feature Bach and Mozart, Berg and Schnittke. As usual, the audience receives a bonus late evening contemporary premiere: a rearranged, new version of the Gyula Csapó concerto composed for viola and changing environment, with Gábor Homoky solo.
The bounteous and exciting season ticket series at Müpa Budapest is the promise of a meeting with favourite composers and performers, as well as works and young artists who are most worthy of our attention. On the first occasion, Zoltán Rácz is ready with a somewhat surprising pairing of Bach, Bernstein and Penderecki works, on the second evening – starring Kristóf Baráti and Péter Eötvös – Debussy works feature alongside compositions by our great Hungarian contemporary. In the third and fourth concerts, Gábor Takács-Nagy moves on towards Romanticism and Bartók: in the former as partner of the rising French pianist star Lucas Debargue playing the Saint-Saëns concerto, in the latter alongside András Keller in the dazzling principal part of Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 2. For the final concert in this season ticket series, the ensemble’s music director is conductor hosting the superb István Várdai, soloist of the Shostakovich-Stravinsky programme.
Masterpieces of our music heritage played worldwide and treasures largely forgotten even at home, works most worthy of discovery by an Oscar winner celebrated in Hollywood and an Austrian master born in Bratislava, whose mother was Hungarian, a whole series of 19th, 20th and 21st century compositions: this in a nutshell is the long-established Concerto Budapest season ticket series showcasing Hungarian jewels in Pest Vigadó. In concerts conducted by Ádám Medveczky, Tibor Bogányi, András Keller, and János Kovács, the commitment of four great instrumental soloists argues for the value of works that are rarely played, or indeed have not been performed for very many years. Thus in the first concert Miklós Perényi plays works from Dohnányi to Ferenc Farkas, after which we become acquainted with noteworthy pieces by János Viski thanks to Katalin Kokas, Franz Schmidt with solo by Mihály Berecz, and finally Miklós Rózsa via Máté Szűcs.
Concerto Budapest’s popular Manó programme is for kindergarten and primary school children, teaching them about the world around us and the foundations of music through playful, interactive performances.
