Dedication & Daring
They are a well-rehearsed team: in 1983 conductor Iván Fischer founded the Budapest Festival Orchestra together with pianist Zoltán Kocsis in his hometown and over the years led it to world fame. Iván Fischer was fulfilling a personal dream, as the orchestra's philosophy was to bring together a group of creative, daring musicians who wanted to develop their musical skills in orchestral playing, chamber music and their solo repertoire. Fischer introduced significant innovations, such as more intensive and individualized rehearsal work in the orchestra and encouraging the creativity of individual orchestra members. It is the innovative approach to music, the dedication of the musicians and their constant pursuit of excellence that has made the Budapest Festival Orchestra one of the best orchestras in the world.
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky took only a few weeks to compose his famous violin concerto in early 1878, which is still one of the most performed pieces in the world. The solo part in Tchaikovsky's masterpiece is performed in this concert by Julian Rachlin. The star violinist believes in the magic of the musical moment: »Discipline, rhythm, pulse, structure of the work: perfection is essential for all of this, but in interpretation there must be room for the moment, because what matters is what is between the notes.«
