The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

The BFO’s Haydn–Mozart concert in April will be a companion piece to the March program. It starts with one of Haydn’s Paris symphonies, followed by one of Mozart’s most popular concertos, this time for piano and orchestra. The second half of the evening will again feature a Mozart serenade, with a special posthorn appearing in the orchestra. The piano solo will be played by Dmitry Shishkin, a Russian in his early thirties, described by Le Temps as “captivating”. He won second prize at the 16th International Tchaikovsky Competition, and first prize at the Geneva International Music Competition. According to Evgeny Kissin, he is a serious, dedicated pianist, in whom professionalism meets natural finesse. The concert will be conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy, a specialist of the two composers and the series’ permanent conductor.
