I am not exaggerating when I say that, whatever I achieved as a musician, I owe more to Leó Weiner than to anyone else. ... To me, he remains an outstanding example of what a musician should be.

Péter Kiss (piano)

In his professional life, Péter Kiss makes every effort to find a balance between giving concerts and teaching. He has been a chamber teacher at the Liszt Academy for many years, while also being a regular feature on concert stages in Hungary and abroad. He was awarded the Annie Fischer performer scholarship three times, in 2011 he picked up the Artisjus Prize for promoting contemporary Hungarian music, and in 2015 he received the Junior Prima Prize in recognition of his successes as a performer. Naturally, his repertoire also includes works by masters of the classics. All the works performed in this concert, part of the Black and White Colours season ticket series, belong to the suite genre, although their origins span a period of some three centuries. We have two modern pieces sandwiched between Bach’s works dating from the 1710s: György Orbán’s eight-movement piano suite, and excerpts from the suite by László Melis, who tragically died last year.

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
