Georgia & Hungary Sing Together

Professors of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest founded by Ferenc Liszt and the International Kodály Institute in Kecskemét, Judit Rajk (contralto) and Anikó Novák(piano) tribute a special event to the world famous Hungarian composers, Ferenc Liszt, Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály. Although there is more than 70 years between the composers birthdays, one can recognise a close relationship between Liszt’s late compositions (these meditative, religious pieces written between 1875 and 1886), Bartók’s modernism and Kodály’s impressionism. The program of the concert is based on their common musical language: like a baroque suite, short pieces of music followed each other, without interruption, composing the pieces into one work. Sometimes we can not even discover when one ends and the other starts, even if there is a pause between them. In addition to the late Liszt works, there are Bartók’s and Kodály’s most significant solo piano pieces and folk song arrangements rooted from the Hungarian folk music tradition in the program.
