The Hungarian Music Society organized its first series of concerts in contemporary music, the Mini-Festival in 1989. Founder Zsolt Durkó sought to create a forum for foreign and Hungarian works that represent different approaches but are consistently of a high artistic quality.
Talking about the importance of new music and the beauty of unknown worlds, Zsolt Durkó said: “The ability of renewal is intrinsic to creative art. Accordingly, imprecise conjectures and fantastic hallucinations that break out with the momentum of discovery, are indispensable.”
Year after year, the Mini-Festival provides the youngest composers with an opportunity to showcase their work. The highlighted artists of 2019 are András Emszt, Ádám Baqais, and Jonatán Zámbó, who are all awardees of this year’s Kodály Zoltán Musical Creative Scholarship.
