The festival is set in motion with the venturous French Baroque composer Jean-Marie Leclair’s (1697–1764) unaccompanied Sonata for Two Violins in C major performed by the two artistic directors of the event series, who have recently recorded all two-violin works of Leclair’s. After the period of self-isolation, this opening piece will carry the power of „respire” with the same force as the Mozart Violin Sonata in A major played by Vilmos Szabadi and Márta Gulyás, which oozes the glee of the Piano Sextet in D major written by Felix Mendelssohn, who would often be regarded as the Mozart of the 19th century. When he wrote this captivatingly inventive piece now performed by a selected group of chamber musicians, the composer was just 15 years old.

With consideration of the pandemic crisis, the number of concert tickets is limited so that the appropriate distance between the seats can be maintained.
