Pēteris Vasks's monumental Cello Concerto No. 2, a part of the Budapest programme, aims at nothing less than tracking the great mystery of human life from birth to death. The world-famous Latvian composer wrote his piece for Sol Gabetta, who is also very popular in Hungary. The soloist at the Hungarian premiere will be Kristaps Bergs: the young Latvian cellist attended Heinrich Schiff's Vienna masterclasses, and won important music competitions.
The concert will be preceded from 6.30 pm by a conversation entitled Prelude, where ticket holders will be invited to get to know the performing musician and the works to be performed more closely.
