My friends are those who haunt the Ideal; there, dear friend, we 'recognize' each other, and shall always do so…

Grand Hall

MÁV Symphony Orchestra Presented by Liszt Academy

Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36

Jiyeong Mun (piano)
MÁV Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Daniel Boico

One work apiece by the two great composers of Romanticism. Chopin was the innovator of piano play and he made the piano effective as a means of communicating emotions and personal messages. Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony is characterized by youthful dynamism and immense passions, and in this his music is at its most ‘Russian’ because he incorporates the famous Russian folk song ‘Birch tree’ in its closing movement. Jiyeong Mun, soloist of the piano concerto, was born in South Korea in 1995. Her talent was shown in an early stage, she has enjoyed an international concert career after winning at the Geneva, then Italian Busoni International Competition. Conductor Daniel Boico studied in St. Petersburg, so one can state that he ‘speaks’ the language of the great Russian composers fluently.
