A lacquered wooden box in human form, long neck and four strings. What is it? The answer to this question is not obvious (or rather, the question is not sufficiently precise), because it could be the violin, viola, cello or double bass. This concert series presenting musical instruments and organized within the framework of the Liszt Kidz Academy for upper primary school pupils (and their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents) takes in the stringed instruments. We learn about their relationship to each other (and whether, for instance, the violin is really more important than the viola, the answer being: no), whether the strings are really made of horsehair (yes), and how these marvellous instruments are used in classical music and the folk tradition. Junior Prima prize winning Accord Quartet and the string ensemble of students of the Liszt Academy’s Folk Music Department are on hand to help the audience get much closer to the instruments. They are joined by narrator Mátyás Bolya, practising musician, lecturer at the Liszt Academy and father several times over. The concert is a repeat of the programme of the same name staged two years ago.

Generations Y and Z of today’s Hungarian composers are heirs to the music tradition, hallmarked by György Ligeti and György Kurtág, which after Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály and Ernő Dohnányi raised Hungarian contemporary music into an international arena. Five young artists of the music composer grouping called Studio 5 have a mission: starting out from this tradition, they bring about new music concerts. Even though these five creative minds almost without exception studied music abroad as well as in Hungary (in Canada, Poland, Belgium, Austria and Sweden), all look on the Liszt Academy as their alma mater. The five compositions in this Studio 5 concert represent five different galaxies in a single universe. The cosmic metaphor is all the more apposite given that Máté Bella was inspired by the structure of the galaxies when writing his piece. In his work, András Gábor Virágh configures an early Christian prayer, while Árpád Solti inserts children’s songs and rhymes into a totally new musical medium. The Szabolcs Mátyássy composition exemplifies the bipolarity of music through a pair of movements whereas Bence Kutrik’s cimbalom concerto arrives at its ‘trembling’ conclusion via the Fibonacci sequence.
