We have no idea how music actually came about but many believe that at some time in the distant past, man discovered the beauty of the voices of nature and tried to mimic them with his own tools. However it happened, in the artistic music also called ‘classical’, nature has always played an important role, as did the question of how the world around us can be evoked with the help of music. In the spring semester, the youth concert series organized by the Liszt Academy, Liszt Kidz Academy, examines the relationship between music and nature. At the season-opening concert, multiple prize-winning pianist József Balog and music historian Dániel Mona grant us a glimpse into the musical world of birds. Or more precisely, the avian world of classical music. The fact is, they do not undertake an analysis of bird song, but rather the presentation of how composers featured the finest vocalists of nature in their works in different historical periods from the Baroque to the 20th century.
