Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra (concertmaster: Péter Tfirst)

The first concert in the new-look Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra season ticket series invites the audience onto a rollercoaster of emotions. The ensemble want to transmit the experience of how Elgar’s and Tchaikovsky’s romantic serenades, and between them two Haydn cello concertos (totally different in character from one another) resonate in the soul of the orchestra. Their partner this evening is Alban Gerhardt who is debuting in Budapest and regularly features in the London Bachtrack statistics as one of the ten most in-demand cellists in the world.
