World famous Hungarian organist László Fassang will bring to life the many colours and nuances of the monumental instrument in a subtle collaboration with the generous sound of the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège. His counterpart Gergely Madaras will then shed light on the Belgian orchestra’s talented soloists with the energetic virtuoso pyrotechnics of Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra.
