The beloved Iván Fischer and Budapest Festival Orchestra, “Hungary’s greatest cultural export” (Guardian, U.K.), return with a sweeping program spanning the Baroque to the late Romantic featuring the “unassailable artistry” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) of pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. The afternoon culminates in the gorgeous melodic flow of Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony.

“Consistently glorious.” New York Times
“He’s a master colorist and a great communicator, able to reduce a large concert hall to an intimate chamber of intent listeners.” Seattle Times on Jean-Yves Thibaudet
