The Pannon Philharmonic was invited to participate in the long-established Musik der Meister series of the Viennese Musikverein for 31 October. From all Hungarian symphony orchestras, it is the Pannon Philharmonic under the baton of chief conductor Tibor Bogányi who was first offered to take part in a concert series in this prestigious concert hall.

After the European Capital of Culture and the Hungarian capital, the ensemble will take up the challenge on the stage of the capital of music. By today, the Pécs-based symphony orchestra is of central importance in the Hungarian music scene, which is reflected by its widespread international acclaim. The ensemble, which has made an appearance also in the grand hall of the Philharmonie Berlin, will give a second concert still this season, followed by four concert events in two future seasons. At the recitals led by chief conductor Tibor Bogányi, Hungarian guest-artists will take to the stage, and the programmes will feature Hungarian and Finnish compositions.

It is a true breakthrough in the history of Hungarian music that the Pécs-based orchestra will have the opportunity to perform in the grand hall of the Musikverein on six occasions all together within the framework of the long-standing Musik der Meister series between October 2021 and June 2023. As the director of the series pointed out, the groundwork of the invitation was the orchestra’s reliably high standard and quality, which is of primary significance for the cultivated and musically indulged Viennese audience.

The Pannon Philharmonic orchestra in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein Wien, 31 Octobre, 2021.


The Pannon Philharmonic is preparing the second night of its Viennese series with a concert full of exuberant melodies so typical of the cello, the event's protagonist. Vienna played a crucial role in the lives of all three composers featuring at the concert. Having fled from the schemings in Venice, Vivaldi tried his luck in Vienna towards the end of his life. The main inspiration for Schumann's symphonic style was Schubert's Symphony in C major “The Great”. Schubert, on his part, spent his entire life in Vienna. Vivaldi's Concerto for Two Cellos captures the audience with its earworm sequence melodies; Schumann's concerto does it with its passionate intimacy, while Schubert's symphony with its outpouring melodies of "heavenly length", as Schumann put it. The night's conductor, Tibor Bogányi, also features as a soloist, and by that, he even more intensely becomes the partner of the other soloist of the night, István Várdai. We can hear a popular, easily digestible, yet colourful and deeply emotional assortment of compositions.
