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.

Host: Endre Tóth

The final decade or so of the last millennium witnessed the birth of promising Hungarian musicians, indeed, artists who can confidently be called outstanding. This has been evident to concert-goers for a long time now. The young artists featuring in this concert are from this generation; all three can boast major competition victories and important debuts, as well as Junior Prima Prizes. László Nyári, Mira Farkas and Gergely Devich have put together something really special for their joint appearance: in the wake of Saint-Saëns’ single-movement romantic Fantasia there is Max Bruch’s cello work, an arrangement of a synagogue melody, with the first half of the evening closing with the Passacaglia movement of Händel’s Suite in G minor as transcribed by Norwegian Johan Halvorsen in 1893. The second half of the concert is fully dedicated to the Trio by French harpist and composer Henriette Renié from the first year of the 20th century.
