Conductor: Gábor Takács-Nagy

Smash hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s! No, we’re not talking about pop radio but the latest concert in the Haydn-Mozart series by Gábor Takács-Nagy and Festival Orchestra. After all, when the conductor famed for his precision and radiant enthusiasm takes his place at the head of BFZ, even the least frequently performed works by the two Viennese gentlemen become unforgettable hits. Haydn’s unparalleled symphony is followed by a most varied Mozart bloc. An alternative slow movement for the final violin concerto and the first Mozart piece written for violin and orchestra are performed by Moldovan violinist Alexandra Conunova, praised by Strad for her “impressive range of colour.” The concert closes with the overture to the “comedy with music” and the symphony extracting the most from the brilliance of the C major key.
