...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

Manchester Camerata
Conductor: Gábor Takács-Nagy

Ever since their foundation nearly half a century ago, Manchester Camerata have ranked among the highest-quality British orchestras; however, the artistic direction of Gábor Takács-Nagy has raised them to rest among the finest in the world. According to the conductor, who holds a Bartók–Pásztory Prize, boundless trust is the thing that makes their combined work so hugely effective. This modern and bold formation, who are open to jazz, pop and folk as well, played in front of a Liszt Academy audience for the first time in 2015, and just as back then, they are joined in this concert by István Várdai, who performs one concerto by Haydn and one by Hayden’s student Antonín Kraft, first cellist with the orchestra of Prince Esterházy. The orchestra further performs Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 and Debussy’s Two Dances featuring with Andrea Vigh.
