Featuring: students of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music

For the most part, practice for the solo repertoire, chamber music and symphony orchestra lie at the core of studies pursued by instrumental students of the Liszt Academy. In addition, special emphasis is devoted to teaching the various period styles, including the contemporary music course during which students gain an awareness of 20th–21st-century composers and their techniques. At the end of 2018, the programme was a compilation of works by British composer and clarinettist Mark Simpson, while in 2019 the course and public concert pay respects to the work of composer Zsolt Serei. This event is also our way of celebrating the artist on his 65th birthday. Zsolt Serei, who is a teacher in the composition department of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, is a leading figure on the Hungarian contemporary music scene. Besides two operas, his compositional oeuvre mainly comprises instrumental and vocal chamber and solo compositions. For this composer’s evening, the audience hears a few characteristic works performed by students of the Liszt Academy.
