Particularly challenging chamber pieces by Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály will be performed by Junior Prima Prize-winning artists, Gergely Devich (cello), Gergely Kovács and Krisztián Kocsis (piano), Korossy Quartet, a group that was formed recently but has already garnered considerable critical acclaim, and Zoltán Schwartz, who is the concertmaster of the Bayreuth Youth Orchestra.

The compositions performed represent different periods in the rich oeuvres of the artists, and are related to each other in multiple ways. Both Bartók and Kodály sought to attain harmony between a personal tone and a communal voice, a balance between tradition and progression. Similarly important is the Hungarian mood of these works, which, however, never prevents the delivery of a general, universal message.

 

This concert of the Bartók Spring is presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with Liszt Academy.
