Amadinda have made a name for themselves as masters of contemporary percussion music although they also play various exotic – primarily African – folk music. In the more than 30 years they have been together, they have had personal contact with famous composers such as John Cage, Steve Reich and György Ligeti. Many compositions have been specially written for or dedicated to the formation. For this evening’s concert, students of the Liszt Academy and Bartók Béla Conservatory of Music take to the stage with the four-member ensemble. Masters and students perform together: Amadinda members Zoltán Rácz and Aurél Holló teach at the above institutions. The evening is complemented with a further three gifted artists in their twenties, Sára Bolyki, Zsófia Soós and Klaudia Bereczki. The programme runs from West African traditional dance music to truly contemporary works: young American composer Elliot Cole’s Postludes dates from 2012. Carlos Chávez was a 20th century Mexican composer, and his works are combined with pieces by Steve Reich, one of the founding fathers of music minimalism.
