Composed near the end of his life, Béla Bartók's Third Piano Concerto was dedicated to his wife Ditta's talents as an outstanding pianist. We welcome soloist Zoltán Fejérvari – First-Prize winner of the 2017 Montreal International Musical Competition – to perform this touching work.
Renowned Swiss conductor Matthias Bamert is a prolific recording artist and a special friend to our orchestra from past acclaimed appearances. Inspired by the symphonic structures of Beethoven's music and thematic reoccurrences in Wagner's, Franck's Symphony in D Minor overflows with melody and passion.
