AUER FESTIVAL IN VESZPRÉM (07/30/2019 - 08/04/2019)

The aim of the organizer, Mendelssohn Chamber Orchestra, is to bring artists to Veszprém's beautiful city, who are the most prominent artists of classical music and play at most famous concert halls of the world.

Since 2015, world-famous artists have paid tribute to Auer's memory in Veszprém - Vadim Repin, Mischa Maisky, Borodin String Quartet, Yuri Bashmet, Zoltán Kocsis, Kristóf Baráti, Barnabás Kelemen, Dezső Ránki, Keller Quartet, Ray Chen – just to name a few.

Veszprém-born Auer Lipot (1845 - 1930) was a Hungarian violinist, conductor, composer and music teacher, an important figure in the world of musical life, the Czar’s court violinist, the state councillor, the professor of music at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, the director and conductor of the Russian Music Society. Countries, kings and sultans competed to hear his performance. He was the father of the method known as the "Russian Violin School", which launched an unprecedented success story. Among his greatest disciples is the name of Jascha Heifetz and Nathan Milstein. They were proud of their friendship, the dominant composers of the era: Tchaikovsky, Rubinstein, Rimsky-Korzhov, Ferenc Liszt and Sergei Rachmaninov. Auer was both an artist and a teacher, Christian and Jewish, Russian and American. And, of course, he was Hungarian, because he confessed that "the affiliation of every artist is decided by the domestic lump".
