FEATURING

Dávid Pintér

CONDUCTOR

Péter Csaba
An afternoon bullfight and the prayer of the bullfighters are evoked in a composition by Joaquín Turina from the last century, conducted by Péter Csaba. Our concert continues with a piece by Ottorino Respighi, a unique figure in Italian music, who has a passion for classical forms and sounds of past centuries. The title of his violin concerto, Concerto all'antica refers to this, or rather to his gallant style. The brilliant piece is performed by the orchestra's violinist Dávid Pintér. But it was also under the spell of classicism, or more precisely under the influence of the Salzburg master, that Schubert composed Symphony No. 5. The composer wrote in his diary: "Oh, Mozart, immortal Mozart! What seeds of a brighter, more beautiful life have you planted in our souls!"
