Meeting a marvel. The 32 piano sonatas written by Ludwig van Beethoven, who was born 250 years ago, together comprise one of the most significant works of art created in the history of music, one that reinterpreted the relationship between the genre and the instrument, wrapping up the development of the Classical piano sonata form and opening the way toward Romanticism. Over the course of nine concerts to be held over two days, Müpa Budapest will present the audience with all 32 personal testaments in the order they were created, with the procession of 32 different performers also serving as a celebration of the storied and internationally renowned Hungarian school of piano playing.
'No matter whether I am playing as a soloist or in a chamber group, my primary aim is always to be a musician rather than a pianist,' says Péter Kiss, for whom the creative process is also extremely important: he has composed his own cadenzas for several piano concertos, including Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major. The winner of a string of competitions, Gergő Zoltán Varga has had the opportunity to introduce himself at orchestral and solo concerts on several continents and regula...rly takes the stage accompanying singers in song and aria recitals. In addition, he has also presented an unusual concert lecture series for young people, with each instalment treating a different era in music history. Róza Radnóti has put her creativity to the test in multiple areas too; coming from a family of applied artists, her interest extends to the visual arts too, and her ambition is to develop her talent in works of total art. Mihály Berecz was 16 years old in 2013 when he made his Müpa Budapest début as the soloist playing Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major. He has appeared with several Hungarian orchestras so far and has been continuing his studies at London's Royal Academy of Music since 2017.
