About This Performance

Focus on Peter Eötvös
See all Focus on Peter Eötvös concerts

Concerto is, shall we say, a term of contention. The word’s origins include the contrasting elements of competition and combination. Peter Eötvös’ new concerto explores the more common form of the genre, a striving solo virtuoso with/against the orchestra. In Bartók’s famous concerto, however, the virtuosos emerge from within the orchestra to contend and unite in stunning musical games.

Come for:

Superstar violinist Midori gives the premiere of a new concerto. 

And more:

One of the most versatile of today’s charismatic young conductors leads a colorful all-Hungarian program.
