The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Conductor: Charles Dutoit

One of the sensations of the 2019 Master Season Ticket series of MÁV Symphony Orchestra was the guest appearance of Charles Dutoit, a genuine, world-famous star conductor and former music director of several top international orchestras. Two French ‘core works’ feature on the programme: Ravel’s gloriously beautiful fairy tale music and the famous organ symphony by Saint-Saëns, during which the audience can revel in the sound of the recently reconstructed, magnificent organ of the Liszt Academy. Dutoit really loves Mozart, but not in the usual way: he showcases not the Rococo fragile delicacy but the drama lying deep within the music. From this aspect, the choice of the Piano Concerto in D minor, written around the same time as, and similar in spirit to, the opera Don Giovanni, is perfect.
