This new instalment of the festival also presents great artists, such as the Polish prodigy, Marianna Bednarska, who has finished first at no less than nineteen domestic and international competitions, including those in Paris (2009), Fermo, Italy (2008) and Plovdiv, Bulgaria (2007).
Third Coast Percussion, a Chicago-based, Grammy Award-winning quartet, brings a captivating contemporary programme, and they will feature Michael Burritt, a percussionist who is also known as a composer. Tambuco Percussion Ensemble, a group of four wonderful Mexican musicians will perform in Solti Hall, while Kai Strobel, who has a host of recent competition wins to his name, arrives from Germany.

These concerts of the Budapest Spring Festival are presented by Müpa Budapest.
