March 2023

Two faces of Vienna, or, the metamorphosis of the symphony. This could well be a summary of this evening with Daniele Gatti and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, who will perform two youthful compositions by Schubert, as well as two pieces by the emblematic figure of Viennese modernism, Anton Webern.

Best known as an opera conductor, the Italian Daniele Gatti has a wide array of symphonic compositions in his impressive recording catalogue (such as the works of Tchaikovsky and Mahler), and can justly be considered one of today's outstanding concert conductors. As a matter of fact, Gatti has always given equal weight to his respective responsibilities in the opera house and the concert hall, being as ready to work at Covent Garden, the Met and the Vienna State Opera, as with the best symphony orchestras of Chicago, Cleveland, New York, Vienna and London.

Daniele Gatti succeeded Mariss Jansons as chief conductor of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2016. Formerly, he was musical director of the Orchestre National de France, principal conductor of the British Royal Philharmonic and the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, principal guest conductor of the Royal Opera House, London, music director of the Orchestra del Teatro Comunale di Bologna, and chief conductor of the Zurich Opera.

Palace of Arts Müpa Budapest

When Müpa Budapest, Hungary and its capital's new cultural hub, opened in 2005, it was built to represent more than 100 years of Hungarian cultural history. As a conglomeration of cultural venues, the building has no precedent in 20th century Hungarian architecture and has no peers in the whole of Central Europe.

The creators of this ambitious project, the Trigránit Development Corporation, prime contractor Arcadom Construction and the Zoboki, Demeter and Partners Architectural Office, were driven by the desire to create a new European cultural citadel as part of the new Millennium City Centre complex along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Danube waterfront. The result is a facility whose construction quality, appearance, functionality and 21st century technological infrastructure makes it ideally suited to productions of the highest standard. The building is also highly versatile and equipped to host performances of any genre and almost any scale.
