As we have become accustomed to in the Concertino series, the programme of the Festival Orchestra’s chamber music concert is, as usual, extremely varied: English, Italian and Austrian music, different ages and schools of music, all evoked with the help of special solo instruments. In a recital spanning composers from Corelli to Britten, multiple winner of the Végh Sándor Tender published for members of the ensemble, horn player Zoltán Szőke, and cellist György Kertész, who has played with the Budapest Festival Orchestra from the beginning, perform with the chamber ensemble of the orchestra in the spirit of virtuosity, intimacy and purity. The first half of the concert reveals the three faces of the Baroque concerto, followed by Mozart’s hugely demanding horn concerto and – leaping a century and half forward – Britten’s symphony, in which the more mature composer further developed his own childhood compositions.
