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.

Kian Soltani will be featured as soloist. »His cello sound is soft and full like caramel, and he plays with a pleasant warmth ... drawing the orchestra along with him like a glow of light around the flame of a candle« is the verdict of The Washington Post on the Austrian shooting star with Persian roots. When Soltani plays, worlds open up: Individuality, depth of expression and a charismatic demeanor distinguish the young cellist. They have made Kian Soltani one of the most exciting musicians of his generation.
