Piano Arias – Liszt209

with Miklós Szinetár and Gergely Bogányi
Charity and public-spiritedness were key aspects of Ferenc Liszt’s life, and it is in this spirit that this piano concert is a joint production with the Őrzők Foundation, the official charity of the Tűzoltó Street Children’s Clinic. This concert is the only piano concert at the Opera every year. This year we have invited Gergely Bogányi, who will be performing at a Liszt recital for the third time. The artist will naturally be playing Liszt works, including opera paraphrases. To make the night even more interesting, Bogányi will be playing an instrument of his own development: a long model of the “wonder piano,” which was provided to the Opera three years ago. Honorary director general Miklós Szinetár will be screening excerpts from his 1982 TV series on Liszt, to which he will add brief explanations.
