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. First off, we sweep out the Hungarian folk dance courtyard. Eszter Somogyi showcases differences between folk and classical singing, while selected instrumentalists draw attention to the fascinating parallels between the past of our villages and certain examples of concert hall music.
