2005 Europakonzert from Budapest with Simon Rattle and Leonidas Kavakos

It was only to be expected that the Europakonzert in Budapest would include a work from the rich musical tradition of Hungary. Leonidas Kavakos as the soloist in Béla Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 2 revealed how the work combines delicate fragility with unrestrained energy. Conductor Simon Rattle also presented Stravinsky’s Firebird, a no less spectacular orchestral piece in the Russian tradition.
