About this event

Hungary's foremost music ambassadors continue the Liszt celebrations with two of the composer's more macabre pieces, separated by the floral intermezzo Mahler originally intended to be part of his First Symphony.

That titanic work, first performed in Budapest under the baton of the composer, is guaranteed to raise the roof.

Before the interval, in his second appearance this year, Dejan Lazić champions Liszt's powerfully original Totentanz, in which the Dies irae is reimagined as a virtuoso piano piece with orchestral support.
