The great pianists of the Romantic era were renowned not only for their virtuosity, which revolutionised the technique of the instrument, or their magical stage performances, but also for their improvisational skills, always ready to employ and inseparable from their musicianship. Liszt was also one of the best improvisers of his time, and many of his piano works bear witness to how the inspiration of the composer was sparked off by the improvisation. Throughout his career, Kálmán Oláh has had a penchant for turning to classical music – Bach, Chopin, Bartók and Kodály –, and this time he explores, both as a composer and performer, a realm that is particularly close to his heart.

This concert of the Liszt Fest is presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with Liszt Academy.
