‘Bartók Also Played It’: this is the subtitle of the concert offering a perceptive insight into the piano repertoire of Béla Bartók. The concert includes works by Liszt and Ravel, naturally enough Bartók himself, as well as a couple by Baroque masters: suites by Purcell and the Jesuit missionary Domenico Zipoli. Head of the Liszt Academy Chamber Music Department Balázs Fülei certainly has a different performer’s temperament and podium personality to Béla Bartók, and perhaps this also plays a part in the fact that we can thank him for such original Bartók interpretations. As a critic recently put it: “Fülei is a Bartók player of great stature: his approach to characters is striking, he displays authentic tempos and dares to go against the ‘carved-in-stone’ interpretations of the Hungarian Bartók performance practice, all of which reveal great courage and absolute independence.” In a critical appraisal of his art, the following has been said: “When he appears, skill, artistic conscience and inspiration take to the stage in his person.”
