Kodály's method of teaching music is brilliant …. All good music-making begins with the voice.

Featuring: students of the Liszt Academy

Péter Eötvös, one of the world’s most recognized musicians, has a stupendously rich oeuvre as both composer and conductor. His pieces for grand orchestra constantly feature on the programmes of concert halls around the world, and in 2019 they are joined by five of his operas. However, over the past few decades, in addition to creative work and giving concerts, teaching and the passing on of knowledge have also become increasingly important for him. He founded the International Eötvös Institute, and then the Péter Eötvös Contemporary Music Foundation, to support – with scholarships and courses – the early careers of young composers and conductors. The chamber formation made up of students of the Liszt Academy are using this concert as a way of greeting Péter Eötvös on his 75th birthday.




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