Kurtág 95 Online Festival

Budapest Music Center is celebrating György Kurtág on the occasion of his 95th birthday with the Kurtág 95 online festival between February 18–21, 2021. Kurtág is considered to be one of the greatest contemporary composers whose unmistakably concise masterpieces capture infinity with only a handful of notes. The festival's four concert nights will be available as free online streams on BMC's website, and on the websites of the festival's partners, Müpa Budapest and the Liszt Academy of Music.
