Éva Szalai’s unusual concert in two parts presents new or recently composed, rarely performed pieces by young Hungarian composers paired with works from the classical repertoire selected by the composers themselves for their own pieces, based on some musical or affectual relationship between the two. The widely used slogan that tradition and innovation go hand in hand, as well as the statement that, in fact, every piece of music is contemporary may well be known by the audience. The young Hungarian composers will reflect upon these ideas, and they will also share how they selected the works as pairs to complement their own pieces. The composers will be interviewed between the pieces by musicologist Endre Tóth.
