The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

The star of this concert is violinist Kirill Troussov, who despite his tender years stands at the forefront of his profession. Each year he performs in the biggest concert halls and with the most famous conductors, while teaching masterclasses. In this concert, he performs the last of Mozart’s five famous violin concertos, the distinctive feature of which is the Hungarian-Gypsy music character of one of its interludes in the rondo-form final movement. ▪ Prior to this, at the beginning of the concert there is an early overture by Mendelssohn, which he composed to the fairy tale drama by Grillparzer about a water nymph and the fate that renders love impossible between a water nymph and earthly man, a theme that has been sung about on more than one occasion. The most important characteristic of the overture is how brilliantly the composer depicts the world of water in his music. ▪ The love of nature is the key motif that inspired the second symphony by Brahms. After the first symphony that struggled to come into this world, this piece is the product of a liberated, joyous creative spirit.
