The world of contemporary music celebrates the 90th birthday of Hungarian composer György Kurtág. Interpreting this influential oeuvre of contemporary classical music, CHB dedicates a special event to Kurtág presenting two concerts and plenty of great musicians.
The evening starts with a classical music concert. Junior Prima award-winning pianist Péter Kiss and clarinet player Péter Szűcs perform Kurtág compositions and pieces dedicated to him by famous contemporary composers such as Péter Eötvös, László Tihanyi and Zoltán Jeney. The second act is a live concert of The Spontaneous Arkestra led by Jean-Paul Bourelly. The legendary fusion musician, composer and conceptualist uses the Conduction method to command the orchestra and reflect on Kurtág’s works. By its nature, Conduction liberates both the conductor and the musicians from the traditional musical rules, habits and conventions, making the collaboration more spontaneous and surprising the audience with unexpected turns. The concert is accompanied by live video projection.
