Composer

Conductor

Professor

Composer, conductor and professor: the Hungarian Peter Eötvös
combines all three roles in a single extraordinarily high-profile career.
Born in 1944, he has long been considered one of the most significant
and influential personalities in the world of music both as an
internationally recognized conductor and a composer of highly acclaimed
operas, orchestral works and concertos written for well-known artists
from all over the world. As a professor, he founded his own institutes
for the future generation of young conductors and composers with
a focus on contemporary music.

Eötvös: Fermata – premiere

Fermata is a concerto for 15 musicians sitting five feet apart. They present a kind of time report: from our Covid days and pandemic years, in which normal life suddenly comes to a standstill, then continues somewhat chaotically and stops again with tragic events.
