The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Liszt to Antal Augusz
Talent Day 2020

9 February 2020, 11.00-19.00

Solti Hall

Talent Day 2020 Presented by Liszt Academy

Featuring: Teachers, students of the Liszt Academy and Bartók Béla Secondary School of Music
Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra (artistic director: Péter Tfirst)

Heinrich Heine is alleged to have once said of Alfred de Musset: he is “a young man with a great future behind him,” and the French poet, the typical self-destructive figure of Romanticism, understandably never forgave the cutting comment of his German colleague. Even so, the bon mot – beyond the fact that it is apposite, and because of this inevitably induces one to ponder – sheds light on an important element as well: namely, that talent, the very nature of which philosophers, aesthetes, pedagogues and more recently neurologists have long looked into, lends not only mystery and privilege to the person who holds it, but at the same time it demands discipline and apportioning. Year on year, the traditional open day of the Liszt Academy lets those interested in on the secret of how extraordinary endowments can be cultivated in the most accomplished, precise and valuable ways possible.
