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.

No composer has inspired as many film directors as Schubert. Excerpts from his works have been used as a score in more than a hundred films, e.g. in ’Sunshine’, in ’I Served the King of England’, in the recently premiered ’Phantom Thread’ or Stanley Kubrick's Oscar-winning ’Barry Lyndon’ where the film's atmosphere is largely determined by the second movement of Schubert's Piano Trio in E flat major.

„Dear Mme Müller,
I was very pleased indeed to have your letter of sympathy. You are right, the days when Austria was attacked without warning were also dreadful days for us. I think it is quite superfluous to write about this catastrophe – you have very concisely and eloquently put into words the main issue.”
