Different faces of Viennese Classicism and one of the most popular Romantic piano concertos in one concert. On the programme: the overture to a late opera of Mozart's and Beethoven's highly influential symphony that turns conventions of format inside-out, along with Schumann's poetic piano concerto in A minor. A major Berlin symphony orchestra with an exciting history, one of the greatest Northern European piano stars of our era and a British conductor who despite - at age 38 - his relative youth has been racking up triumph after triumph for many years and has already appeared before the Hungarian audience more than once as a guest of the Budapest Festival Orchestra. This time, Robin Ticciati will be visiting us at the helm of his own orchestra, as he has served as the chief conductor of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin since 2017.

The internationally celebrated pianist Leif Ove Andsnes is the pride of Norway - just like the composer Edvard Grieg, whose works the 51-year-old musician enthusiastically strives to popularise. But of course, it's not just Grieg that he plays: his repertoire is extremely rich, as demonstrated by his strikingly bountiful discography, which includes works by Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms alongside those of Janáček, Debussy, Ravel, Enescu and Shostakovich, not to mention Bartók's piano concertos. The predecessor to the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin was founded in 1946 as the famed RIAS (Rundfunk im Amerikanischen Sektor) orchestra, which in 1956 became the Radio-Symphonie-Orchester Berlin. It took on its present name in 1993. Attesting to its level of quality is the list of conductors who have led it: Ferenc Fricsay, Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Chailly, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Kent Nagano, Ingo Metzmacher, Tugan Sokhiev and now Ticciati. A British subject of Italian extraction, he has earned acclaim at the helms of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera while also taking the podium of the Bamberg Symphony as a guest. The management of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin has been so pleased with his work that by 2020 they had already extended his contract until 2027.
