Taste is a negative thing. Genius affirms and always affirms.

“He’s life itself,” is what the great English conductor Sir Colin Davis said of Mozart, neatly summing up what we all feel about the maestro. Mozart Day, which is gradually becoming a fixture on the spring calendar, celebrates the phenomenon, with Concerto Budapest and terrific guest performers – including Arvid Engegård and his quartet, Dezső Ránki, Edit Klukon and Izabella Simon, who also takes care of the children’s programme – playing in the Grand Hall and Solti Chamber Hall of the Liszt Academy from morning to late evening. The artists play works from the oeuvre of one of history’s greatest creative minds during this keynote event on Sunday at least as much for their own pure delight as for our pleasure: the simple fact is that Mozart is not only an evergreen favourite of concert-going audiences but of musicians, too. Joy and beauty, drama and purification, noble exultation and puckish humour: this is a one-day excursion through the elevated and yet so human-centric empire of Mozart brilliance. It is an exhaustive yet never exhausting programme that revels in the extensiveness of Mozart’s musical world.
