Music behind the sounds Interview with Péter Szabó

Péter Szabó is the solo cellist of the Festival Orchestra, he conducts, he writes cadenzas, he searches for pieces which have not been performed yet and then he presents them. He has won prizes from numerous international competitions. He is going to give a chamber music concert with Alfons Kontarsky and David Frühwirth in the Budapest Spring Festival. He has made recordings for Hungaroton, Naxos and EMI.

Concert critic
