New Liszt Ferenc Chamber Choir (choir master: László Norbert Nemes) Conductor: Ko Matsushita

Ko Matsushita, one of the most sought-after and productive artists mainly writing a cappella, conducts the choir (created for the classical choral repertoire and contemporary choral canon), which was founded in 2010 by conductor Péter Erdei, and operating under the guidance of László Norbert Nemes from 2014. The Japanese composer was born in 1962 and after studying at a prestigious Tokyo conservatory he went on to the Kodály Institute in Kecskemét. Ko Matsushita manages to blend the European and Japanese traditions to perfection, something evident not only in the diversity of his distinguished oeuvre but also in individual works. His motets and Japanese folk songs performed at this recital draw on music traditions of several thousand years, whether Gregorian or the culture of his native island. The programme offers further interesting points of reference with works by composers representing several generations of Hungarian choral music, starting with a Kodály masterpiece, Norwegian Girls, followed by compositions running the gamut of emotions from the pen of György Orbán, a figure who has bestowed many popular pieces for choirs on audiences and singers over past decades. The 40s age group associated with this style is represented by the setting to music of the Petőfi poem by Orbán student Levente Gyöngyösi during his years at the Liszt Academy and imbued with Hungarian folk and pop styles.
