Gábor Boldoczki (trumpet), László Fassang (organ)

A perfect pairing. This is true as much for the instruments as for the artists. Gábor Boldoczki and László Fassang are both performers acknowledged at international level, who have proved on numerous occasions that playing together is in their blood. Their playing is the occasion for joyous music; technically, neither artist is challenged, so in making music together they are able to concentrate on carefree enjoyment even in the most demanding of pieces, thereby extending uplifting moments to audiences. The organ-trumpet pairing is mainly to be heard in Baroque works, thus compositions by 17-18th century composers are in the majority. Romanticism is represented in this concert by Liszt and Fauré, the 20th century by Enescu, whose Légende dates from the same time as the building of the Liszt Academy organ. Both halves of the concert wind up with complete dance suites, but the arrangements promise to be real points of interest, while the programme is further enlivened with improvizations. The whole experience is enhanced by the fact that we can once again revel in the sounds of the fully restored organ of the Liszt Academy, which is 110 years old.

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
