Narration and piano: Balázs Fülei

It is often said that music is like a language, a language in which the instruments speak. But what does music say, and how is it capable of relating a story if it is not supported by text? The spring 2019 concerts of the Liszt Academy’s youth series, Liszt Kidz Academy, which is targeted at 10–15-year-olds (as well as their parents and grandparents), seek answers to these questions. The first performance in the season ticket series sees Liszt and Junior Prima Prize-winner Balázs Fülei, head of the Liszt Academy Chamber Music Department, presenting exactly what his chosen instrument, the piano, is capable of saying and how it can frequently communicate emotions and messages to the audience more effectively and more profoundly than any text. It becomes clear from the playing and narrating of Fülei why composers were once referred to as ‘poets of sound’.
