This series includes the majority of the season’s top guests: stars of international concert life as well as the pride of Hungarian music. Amazingly talented youth, the pick of the crop of the middle generation, and the grand old masters can all be discovered and enjoyed on the stages of Müpa Budapest and the Liszt Academy. At the very first recital, Gidon Kremer is guest of András Keller and the orchestra, after which – at two concerts – Heinz Holliger, who has shown such an affinity and commitment towards the art of Sándor Veress, heads up Concerto Budapest. The vanguard of pianists is represented by Anna Vinnitskaya, Dénes Várjon, Matan Porat and Anna Shelest, with the latter performing under the baton of the great Estonian conductor, 82-year-old Neeme Järvi. Naturally, we should not forget to mention the remarkable privilege afforded by the incredible cello skills of Miklós Perényi, which we can witness at the concert in the Beethoven Days held in tribute to Annie Fischer.
