About

Art Management

In the beginning there were the words. Spoken and written ones: the Hungarian Radio and the printed press. I started to co-work with Balázs Fülei pianist in 2015, with several decades of cultural journalist experience behind me. Vita-Musica provides space and background for his career, helping to realize his ideas, artistic projects and performances.

Beyond the arrangement of traditional concerts, in the noblest sense of the word, we have been seeking new ways as well: opportunities when the artist finds his way to the audience not just through his musical instrument but also verbally, sharing his thoughts with them and thus involving the audience into the aura of the concerts in an even more intensive way. We have been trying to expand the limits, to find passages between activities and genres and to entwine various fields of art. Our aim is to show the very special and unusual experience of a joint performance of classical music and the piano combined with another field of art, be it folk music, literature, theatre or even sculpture; the more things we try, the more we see that the possibilities are infinite. That is, music is present everywhere and in everything.

„Béla Bartók has a mysterious personality. He is an assertive and petulant artist, a touchingly caring father, a shy lover, a witty storyteller, uncompromising in his artistic goals, a sharp-eyed and sarcastic observer and a true patriot. Reading Bartók’s texts is a real challenge for an actor.”

„….Then we played the sonata again in front of this truly sophisticated company. Ravel was sitting on my right and was turning the pages for me while Milhaud, on my left, was looking at the score. As for the sonata, they have said that ’c’est une merveille’ and it is the most beautiful violin sonata for the last do not know how many years – the French, of course, are a bit too generous with compliments.”
