...a country (Hungary) whose population, even today, is barely over ten million has produced so many musicians and so much outstanding music. I am grateful for having been born and trained there.

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 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 seriesorganized by the Liszt Academy, Liszt Kidz Academy, examines the relationship between music and nature. The season closing concert journeys to unusual depths: underwater, with the fishes. Because although the song of fishes has never actually inspired anyone to music, plenty of composers have written ‘watery’ or ‘fishy’ music. What these are and why they are what they are is up to pianist Balázs Fülei, head of the Liszt Academy Department of Chamber Music, and music historian Dániel Mona to relate, in the process of which they will receive assistance not only from their musician colleagues but Liszt, Debussy and Schubert, too.

Tickets and season tickets purchased for April 19th 2020 are valid for this concert.
