In the wake of their introductory concert in February 2017, members of the composers’ group going under the name Studio 5 make another Composers’ Evening appearance at the Liszt Academy. Máté Bella, Bence Kutrik, Árpád Solti, Judit Varga and András Gábor Virágh are the heirs of that music tradition hallmarked by György Ligeti and György Kurtág, which – after Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály and Ernő Dohnányi – has raised contemporary Hungarian music onto an international level. Starting from this noble tradition, the aim of Studio 5 is to create new musical concerts that represent at the highest artistic standard a bridge between tradition and innovation, patina and progress. By reinterpreting their musical roles, the creative minds are endeavouring to bring contemporary music closer to a young audience and make the new sounds they represent accessible and experiential to as many people as possible. Even though every one of the Studio 5 composers completed part of their music studies abroad, they all consider the Liszt Academy their alma mater. They can boast countless Hungarian and international prizes, and several of them are also respected as teachers at the Liszt Academy. The acoustically excellent Sir Georg Solti Chamber Hall is venue for their new music recital in which just like last year some of the most gifted of the young generation of musicians take to the stage.
