In 1992, at the age of just 22, Emmanuel Pahud was the youngest member of the Berlin Philharmonics, and he can still be spotted in the ranks of this great ensemble during concert broadcasts. However, he has also been a globe-trotting world star for two decades, a full-right member of the elite of instrumental soloists. “The instrument enables me to transpose into music what I’m thinking and what I’m feeling. But, although the instrument is important, the player is the most important. All the work must be done before the mouth even makes contact with the instrument,” the Geneva-born musician said in an interview. For this concert he plays one piece each by Mozart, Schubert, Schumann and Mendelssohn from his famously broad repertoire, most in his own arrangement. The flautist has been a guest in Budapest several times (and on each occasion he received an enthusiastic reception); this time he is accompanied by French pianist Eric Le Sage, recognized as an authority on Romantic music, particularly that of Schumann.
