The Liszt Academy Alma Mater Choir, just like any music ensemble made up of students of an educational institution, are virtuosi of permanent renewal. At the same time, they retain the classical values through their excellent and carefully crafted performances, and the inseparable nature of these two characteristics cannot be shown more clearly in the case of any topic other than that organized for this May concert. The fact is, the concert programme parades the musical pictures of the overwhelming power of eternal attraction experienced in a thousand different ways, adoration, destruction and renewal, that is, love, playing the agonizingly chromatic, passionate madrigals of Gesualdo and Marenzio, through the works of Elgar, Csemiczky and Cornelius, to the nostalgically beautiful love song-waltz series of Brahms.
