What is music good for? The proper question should rather be, what is it not good for… We sing when happy, serenade when in love, listen to moving music when in sorrow, or join a concert when in need of replenishment. And then there’s dance! There is no dance without music, and the history of music would be poorer without dance. The autumn 2023 programme of Liszt Kidz Academy, the Liszt Academy series for young people, examines the connection between music and dance. Matinees complete with musicians and dancers reveal how dance music was transformed into classical music. The third programme in the series takes us back in time several hundred years when Simplicissimus Ensemble deliver the music of Renaissance and Baroque courts. Graceful movements, elegant costumes and strict dance etiquette accompany the music of royalty.
