“...fleet-fingered lightness and a rich timbre...” — The New York Times on Várdai

Audience-favourite Maestro Jun Märkl returns with a program tracing the evolution of the French sound: lush and masterful orchestration, cyclical forms, and great thematic cohesion. Young Hungarian cellist István Várdai brings his famed “Du Pré-Harrell” Stradivarius, built in 1673, to tackle Saint-Saëns’ beloved Concerto No. 1.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Diamond and 2019-2020 Symphony Sundays series.
