However, these days Hungarian and international audiences primarily celebrate him as a conductor. And it is in this capacity that the symphony orchestra of his alma mater welcomes to this concert the delightful Takács-Nagy, who in the first part conducts one work each by two giants of Viennese Classicism.
Mozart’s G major flute concerto, written by the composer on the commission of Dutch flautist Ferdinand de Jean, follows the Haydn Symphony No. 94 (from 1791), which is sometimes known as the ‘Surprise Symphony’ and sometimes the ‘Kettledrum Stroke’ for its unexpected kettledrum sound effects.
The concert closes with probably the most performed Schumann symphony, the fourth, dating from the mid-19th century.
