  • Éva Szalai - piano
  • moderated by Endre Tóth, music historian

The two-part, unusual concert of pianist Éva Szalai is pairing new or rarely performed pieces by young Hungarian composers with works of the classical repertoire, chosen by the composers themselves. This proves the slogan that tradition and innovation go hand in hand, just as it is obvious to most of concert-goers that all music is actually contemporary music. Whether these ideas are shared by the young Hungarian composers in question and the aspects in which they chose the pieces to their own works will be discussed by the composers themselves, interviewed by music historian Endre Tóth.
