In 2011 BOZAR MUSIC celebrates the bicentenary of Liszt's birth by offering a residency to a great Liszt specialist, Zoltán Kocsis. Not as a pianist this time, but as the conductor of his Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra. A hand of iron and a clear-cut, but subtly shaded, sound: ideally suited to Liszt's Hungarian Coronation Mass, a work of sumptuous choral and orchestral colour and majestic radiance. We will also hear Bartók's energetic Concerto for Orchestra, in which each group of instruments contributes to a dialogue within a brilliant orchestral fabric.
