As a member of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO), every year Müpa Budapest takes part in the production of the Rising Stars series. The concerts in the series present young artists performing programmes of music that include premières of contemporary works commissioned by ECHO.Anaïs Gaudemard was initially a student of the Conservatoire de Lyon, before continuing her studies at the Haute École de Musique de Lausanne - gaining the highest recognition at both institutions for her performance. In 2012, the French harpist won first prize at the highly prestigious International Harp Contest in Israel, while in 2016 she placed second in the ARD International Music Competition (of the Consortium of Public Broadcasters in Germany) in Munich. She recorded her first album after winning the Thierry Scherz Prize at the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad festival in 2015, which provided her the opportunity to produce a CD. Gaudemard devoted the album to works by Debussy, Boieldieu and Ginastera. In her career to date she has worked with ensembles including the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Collegium Musicum Basel, the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra, cooperating with conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Leonard Slatkin, Kazushi Ono and Emmanuel Krivine.
The contemporary work to be heard at this concert, written by the 28-year-old French composer Camille Pépin, was inspired by Nighthawks (1942), one of the best-known works by the prominent American realist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967).
In Festival Square after the concert, visitors will be able to participate in a meet and greet moderated by Endre Tóth, where they can chat with the artists appearing in the concert and request autographs.
