Players of brass instruments rarely take the stage as soloists in concertos, and when they do, it is usually in Baroque or classical pieces. The poor 'brasses' were exiled to the orchestra during the Romantic period. Richard Strauss's Horn Concerto No. 1 is the 19th century's most performed such piece. But when did we hear it last? And Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue for the trumpet?

This concert features two genuine brass prodigies. Tamás Pálfalvi began studying trumpet in 1998. From the age of 10 years old, he longed to be a trumpet player, and did all he could to succeed. He enrolled in Bard College in the US in 2009, and after returning to Hungary, continued his studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. Since 2014, he has performed in concerts on Baroque trumpet. He performed in the Rising Stars project of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO), where Péter Eötvös composed a piece for him. The German Tillman Höfs was born into a family of musicians in 1996. An award-winning trumpetist until age 15, he picked up the horn only in 2011, with which he achieved similarly rapid success. He performs as a soloist for such groups as the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, the orchestra of the Halle Staatstheater, the Philharmonie Baden-Baden, the Hamburg Camerata and the Camerata Instrumentale Berlin.

The Kodály Philharmonic Debrecen is the successor to the Debrecen Philharmonic Orchestra. In past decades, it has been led by such conductors as Vilmos Rubányi, László Szabó, Karolos Trikolidis and Imre Kollár. Its current conductor, Dániel Somogyi-Tóth, succeeded Balázs Kocsár in leading the orchestra in 2011.
