“The world is what it is, it will not be better or more attractive, it will not adjust itself to our beautiful dreams"-and this is painful." This could be a somewhat malicious summary of the world-weariness of early Romanticism, whose greatest bard was Lord Byron, a man of adventure. One of his most inspiring characters is Manfred, who is weighed down by a guilt whose origins are lost in the mists of the past.

Tchaikovsky evoked his figure and story in a multi-movement symphony. The other hero of this concert is the young pianist, Zoltán Fejérvári, who has already distinguished himself with the performance of such fiendishly complex pieces as Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 1, György Ligeti’s Piano Concerto, and the solo piano version of Stravinsky’s Petrushka.

An award winner of several international competitions (including the James Mottram International Piano Competition in the UK, and the Ricardo Viñes International Piano Competition of Spain), in 2013 he won the Liszt Society’s “Grand Prix du Disque" for his album.
