My friends are those who haunt the Ideal; there, dear friend, we 'recognize' each other, and shall always do so…

Liszt to Ödön Mihalovich

Black and White Colours 2020

Our popular solo piano series once again features unique performances for lovers of the instrument. Fülöp Ránki is one of the most prominent artists of the youngest generation of Hungarian pianists, who has been on the stage of Hungary's most important concert halls, as well as in Europe and Japan. He has already performed at the premiere of several solo and three piano pieces by Barnabás Dukay, and has also participated in the Hungarian premiere of two major orchestral works by Olivier Messiaen; it is no surprise therefore that the works of these two composers are at the core of his current concert. Franz Liszt Prize-winning pianist Gábor Csalog has played an active role in the premieres of Ligeti's works in Hungary and his 2006 album, which includes, among others, etudes from the 20th century composer, is an eloquent example of this. The concert also features a selection of pieces from Bach’s Das Wohltemperierte Klavier. While Ligeti's works concentrate on the rhythmic world, the focus in the Bach pieces is on the melody and the diverse nature of the tones. Glenn Gould was one of the most eminent and distinguished pianists of the 20th century. The programme of László Borbély’s show pays tribute to the brilliant Canadian pianist. All of the pieces performed at the concert were part of Glenn Gould's repertoire, be it concerts or studio recordings. The programme of János Palojtay’s performance, entitled "Songs Without Lyrics," includes the piano transcriptions of authentic, lyricized songs; pieces that refer in their title to the genre of the song but never actually had any lyrics; piano arrangements of folk songs, and a vocal piece composed without lyrics. Dávid Ball’s recital spans close to eight decades of Romanticism, featuring the works of three authors who were both performing artists and composers: besides composing music, they gained fame in their own time with their mastery of the piano.
