Jazz piano and folk violin, jazz singing and hurdy-gurdy, cimbalom and jazz guitar, zither and jazz saxophone. Even though classical music represents the core of professional and artistic training at the Bartók Conservatory (Konzi), workshops offer much more than acquiring just the basic works of the European musical repertoire. Improvisational imagination and the rethinking of traditional music structures play a large part here, in both traditional and experimental forms. Furthermore, students and their teachers are constantly seeking ways of filling the various expressive forms – as applies to either the classical heritage or each other – with fresh, new content. The combined concert of these two relatively new courses run at the Konzi, jazz and folk music founded in 2014, bears witness to how written and unwritten, archaic and modern music cultures can have such an inspirational impact on each other.
