Ferenc Liszt’s person and art form a bridge between Beethoven and Bartók, and his thought on music continues to be an essential influence on the ideal of music in our time. Many of his works have become enduring standards of concert programmes, while we are still far from approaching a comprehensive overview of a vast oeuvre whose distinctive traits included a ceaseless metamorphosis. He is perhaps the only composer who still holds great surprises in store for posterity.
His works can provide programmes for several concert marathons. This year’s two-day series will comprise recitals mostly of his works for solo piano, with the performers of the new generation and the youngest pianists taking the lion’s share in this remarkable enterprise. This concert marathon will be splendid evidence that Liszt’s tireless pedagogical work in Hungary keeps bearing ample fruit to this day.

These concerts of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre.
