This year’s leading figure in the traditional MVM Christmas Concert is violinist Kristóf Baráti, who contributes to the seasonal festivities with Bach’s D minor partita. In the concert that has attracted huge interest, he will be expertly partnered by Andrea Vigh on harp and János Balázs on piano, ensuring the perfect tuning for the Christmas celebrations. The performance (without intermission) is a fitting closure to the 2019 MVM Concerts series, which once again brought a long list of top artists to the Grand Hall of the Liszt Academy throughout the year.
