About the Event

On this highly‐anticipated concert, hear the mellifluous sounds of music by Sibelius, Rachmaninov and Scriabin at Budapest's treasured and world‐renowned Palace of Arts.

Although relations between Finland and Russia were, to put it mildly, rarely free of conflict, this concert featuring world‐famous pianist‐conductor Mikhail Pletnev and Concerto Budapest is solid proof that the music and culture of the two nations sit quite happily alongside each other, and what is more, the works performed at the concert are pieces from the most fertile periods of Sibelius, Rachmaninov and Scriabin all dating from the turn of the century.

Amira won first prize at the music competition Jugend Musiziert in 2013 and 2016. She became the winner of her age group at the Carl Schroeder Competition with maximum score. Moreover, she made it to the semifinal in the Virtuosos classical music talent show, getting the scholarship of the Domhof Foundation. In 2017, she decided to start again in Virtuosos, so she can reflect the joy of the music to the people. Amira was so motivated that she became the winner of her age group in the end.
