This concert, which has the hallmarks of being a singular experience, sees two superbly gifted trumpet players take to the stage together. Both have staggering technical abilities and both are endowed with a fine sensitivity in their musicality. And while one is already at the summit of his profession (this is not the first time he has appeared at the Liszt Academy as guest artist and professor), the other will almost certainly arrive there in short order! It was apparent from an early age that the extraordinarily talented Tamás Pálfalvi was destined for a career as a trumpet player. He won a scholarship to study at Bard College in 2009, and it is almost impossible to conceive that despite his youth he has already found time to work together with so many major orchestras and conductors (Fabio Luisi, Péter Eötvös, Christoph Eschenbach and Zoltán Kocsis to name but a few). He gave his diploma concert at the Liszt Academy in May 2016, while his solo album has just recently been released, on which he displays his versatility with a stunningly diverse programme. His partner for the evening, Jeroen Berwaerts, born in 1975, is just as at home in 20th century and contemporary music as in jazz. He has been first trumpet player with the Northern German Radio Symphony Orchestra in Hamburg since 1999, but he frequently appears as soloist in ensembles directed by Christoph Eschenbach, Christoph von Dohnányi and Thomas Hengelbrock; he is also associated with several premieres.
