All three songs immediately catch the listener's ear. George Enescu's (1881-1955) Romanian Rhapsody No. 1 enlivens the folk music traditions of his native country with a lively and brilliant orchestration. Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is one of the most beloved violin concertos of all times. Brahms's created his Piano Quartet in G minor at a young age; the piece is still strongly rooted in the tradition of the great classics, but with traces of romantic expressiveness from the depths of the soul. The dizzying final movement was written under the influence of his friend, József Joachim, who introduced Brahms to the Hungarian music of his time. Twentieth-century composer Arnold Schoenberg loved the work so much that he arranged it for symphony orchestra.

Grammy-winning violinist Augustin Hadelich was born in Italy to a German family in 1984. After graduating, he continued his studies in the United States, where he began his career and where he has been living ever since. András Keller is the Kossuth Prize-winning first violinist of the famous string quartet he founded. He has been conducting since 2003 and is the chief conductor of the Concerto Budapest.
