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.
As the grand prize for winning the Haute École de Musique de Genève's Beethoven competition in October 2019, Ivett Gyöngyosi got the chance to perform the composer's Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major live at Victoria Hall as the soloist for the university's orchestra, with Gábor Takács-Nagy conducting. Junior Prima Award-winner László Borbély is a profund and intellectual artist who serves as a professor at the Liszt Academy in addition to regularly performing concerts. He has created several solo... records in recent years, including one of Bach's Goldberg Variations. Closing the penultimate concert will be Liszt Award and Kossuth Prize-winner Gergely Bogányi, an audience favourite since winning his first major competition in the '90s and a regular guest in the world's most wonderful concert halls. If Beethoven's sonata series were the Himalayas, the monumental Hammerklavier Sonata, which in some performances clocks in at around 50 minutes, would be its Mount Everest.
