Budapest Music Center is celebrating György Kurtág on the occasion of his 95th birthday with the Kurtág 95 online festival between February 18–21, 2021.

Kurtág is considered to be one of the greatest contemporary composers whose unmistakably concise masterpieces capture infinity with only a handful of notes.

February 18 from 19:30 CET
