Lawrence Foster, the conductor for the evening is a returning guest at the helm of the Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra: the American Lawrence Foster is music director of the Opéra de Marseille and honorary conductor of Lisbon's Gulbenkian Orchestra, in addition to working regularly with orchestras both in Europe and around the world.
This concert features one of the most successful Hungarian musicians, who is also The Artist of the Season 2020/21 at Müpa, playing an extraordinarily virtuoso cello concerto that was written by Haydn. Even as a child, the Pécs-born István Várdai displayed an incredible talent. He never considered renouncing his studies, however - quite the opposite. After graduating from the Liszt Academy in Budapest, Mr Várdai went to Vienna and then later 'the Mecca for cellists', the Kronberg Academy in Germany. He took on one major international competition after another: Moscow, Geneva, Munich, and was a success everywhere he went. Mr Várdai, who has go on to become the most sought-after cellist in the world, became a teacher at the Vienna Music Academy in autumn 2018.
