Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

World-famous trumpeter Sergei Nakariakov burst into the international music scene in the early 1990s. He has played with the greatest conductors, including Sir Neville Marriner, Kent Nagano, Mikhail Pletnev, Sakari Oramo, Jaap van Zweden, Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Spivakov, Christoph Eschenbach, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Jiří Bělohlávek. He has recorded more than fifteen CDs with some of the leading labels. He performs in the most important concert halls, both as the soloist of concertos and as a chamber musician. The Belgian Maria Meerovitch, and his sister, Vera Okhotnikova, are his regular pianist partners.

Now, with the participation of Dohnányi Orchestra Budafok, he will perform Amilcare Ponchielli’s concerto, a splendid piece of Italian Romanticism, and The Carnival of Venice, which Joseph Jean-Baptiste Laurent Arban, one of the greatest trumpet virtuosos of his time, based on a Neapolitan folk song.
