The spectacular musicians of the Budapest Festival Orchestra are back at the Easter Festival for the second time.

Led by Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer, who founded the orchestra in 1983, they will perform some of Richard Strauss’ most beautiful symphonic works with their customary verve. Fischer makes his musicians, and his audience, soar, revealing the ideas and emotions behind this eminently romantic pieces.

Staying faithful to his roots, he has also planned two, slightly less highbrow Hungarian pieces with Erno Dohnányi’s Symphonic Minutes (1933) and the Violin Concerto No. 1 (1908) by Béla Bartók, performed by Renaud Capuçon.

This concert is generously supported by Aline Foriel-Destezet, grande donatrice
