This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of György Ligeti, one of the most exciting composers of the 20th century, a constant seeker of new paths forward. Originally from Transylvania, he studied at Budapest's Liszt Academy and, after emigrating in 1956, produced his mature work in Western Europe. Concerto Budapest and the Hungarian Radio Choir are commemorating the artist with a concert of four emblematic works of his, with the singers Sarah Defrise and Szilvia Vörös serving as the two soloists for the concert. Two decades younger than Ligeti, Péter Eötvös will make for the most fitting possible conductor for the evening.
The concert will be preceded from 6.30 pm by a conversation in Hungarian entitled Prologue, where ticket holders will be invited to get to know the performing musician and the works to be performed more closely.
The host of the discussion is Gergely Fazekas.
Presented by: Müpa Budapest
Hungarian Radio Choir (choirmaster: Zoltán Pad)
