'Ligeti 100', Palace of Arts Budapest, 22 June
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of György Ligeti, one of the most exciting composers of the 20th century, a constant seeker of new paths forward.

Originally from Transylvania, he studied at Budapest's Liszt Academy and, after emigrating in 1956, produced his mature work in Western Europe.

Concerto Budapest and the Hungarian Radio Choir are commemorating the artist with a concert of four emblematic works of his, with the singers Sarah Defrise and Szilvia Vörös serving as the two soloists for the concert.

The programme will be overseen by the clarinet player, composer and conductor Gergely Vajda, who is known as a committed interpreter of 20th century and contemporary works.
Place: Palace of Arts Budapest
Address: 1095 Budapest, Komor Marcell utca 1.
