Dejan Lazić steps in for a tour with Budapest Festival Orchestra

01.09.2016

Dejan Lazić will step in for Maria João Pires, joining the Budapest Festival Orchestra on tour to China. Under the baton of Iván Fischer, Dejan will giver four performances of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in Guangzhou (1st October), Xi'an (3rd October), Beijing (5th October) and Shanghai (8th October). Dejan will then return to the Budapest Festival Orchestra in spring 2017, for concerts in Budapest and on tour within Europe.

Dejan’s recent debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Tanglewood under the baton of Andris Nelsons was a huge success, and his performance of Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 5 was met with critical acclaim. The Boston Globe praised Dejan’s performance, describing his playing as “with an almost elfin lightness of touch“.
