Márton Kerékfy: New Hungarian choral works by Editio Musica Budapest
Márton Kerékfy (HU)

Since its foundation in 1950, Editio Musica Budapest (EMB) has developed a rich and varied catalogue, focusing mainly on music education and contemporary Hungarian works. Choral music, which has been central to Hungarian music education and composition since Bartók and Kodály, still plays a pre-eminent role in EMB’s activity. The aim of this presentation is to introduce new choral works, mostly by young composers, which have already been proved successful in Hungary, and may arouse international interest as well.
