Bartók Concerto for Orchestra

Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23

Beethoven  Symphony No. 5

Andreas Keller leads Concerto Budapest Symphony Orchestra, opening with Bartók Concerto for Orchestra, among the greatest of 20th century orchestral showpieces. This will be followed by Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 23 – with Angela Hewitt a sure hand at conveying its many moods - and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, a rousing finish to the Season.

'Bartók’s magic is that through folk music, he discovered the earth’s energies, he is able to reach humanity’s ancient, elemental side in a way that few others are capable of doing. The way that Bartók integrated folk music roots into the history of Western art music is a totally unique phenomenon.' Andras Keller

'I like playing with those great soloists with whom there is little need to talk about how we would like to play, we just play. I feel that with Angela, we perfectly understand each other’s musical language.' Andras Keller

'When we play Beethoven music, we are connected with the universe, we become a part of it. My mission is to attempt to get this message across to others as well.' Andras Keller
