On Monday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán attended a concert given by the National Philharmonic Orchestra at the Théatre des Champs Élysees. Zoltán Kocsis was both soloist and conductor. The program featured Beethoven's St Stephen's Overture, the Liszt E flat major piano concerto and Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra. There was not a single empty seat in the theatre, which is the same size as our own Víg Theatre, and the musicians were rewarded with an enthusiastic and vocal reception. The audience persuaded the orchestra to give three encores, Ravel, Brahms and Berlioz.
