'Kodály 134', Liszt Academy, 16 December
It is now a tradition for the Liszt Academy to pay tribute to one of the most significant Hungarian composers of the 20th century, Zoltán Kodály, with a concert on his birthday.

Kodály, who alongside being a composer, teacher of music and musicologist was one of the most influential public figures of the past century, had multiple ties – as student and teacher – to the Liszt Academy.

He graduated as a composer from the academy, and from 1907 he taught harmony in his alma mater and then later, for nearly two decades, composition; even after his ‘retirement’ he continued teaching folk music.

The evening’s celebration of this great individual includes major choral works by Kodály, together with his Serenade and several songs, all brought to stage – as is traditional for this event – with the input of accomplished artists.
