Liszt to Giovanni Sgambati

Concertmasters of the Orchestra 2022

The series “will cast” three renowned violinists at the helm of the ensemble consisting of string members of the Franz Liszt Symphony Orchestra, which has been awarded the title of National Youth Orchestra: Giovanni Guzzo, Barnabás Kelemen and Kristóf Baráti will not only lead the ensemble, but will also perform as soloists.

The programme includes classical pieces for string orchestra such as Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence, Bartók's Divertimento and Suk's Serenade, as well as violin concertos by Mozart, Haydn and Mendelssohn. The audience will also be treated to such rarely performed musical gems as Respighi’s organ suite, an exciting combination of modern and baroque elements.
