The songs entered into the small jazz formation category of Müpa’s Composition Competition were written for the most diverse ensembles, as regards both the number of players and the instruments, and the award winners cover a broad spectrum from solo keyboards plus electronics to a septet. The six compositions performed at the concert offer a vivid illustration of the musical thinking that inhabits the broad range between free improvisation and fixed forms, as well as the efforts of the various generations that are active at the same time, from the doyens to career starters.
Of course, the compositions represent very different musical and artistic universes: one of the pieces seeks musical answers to philosophical questions, another was inspired by the atmosphere of a popular film, and yet another by abstract musical structures.
