Why are we scared of contemporary music? And what can we do not to be scared of it? Take Steve Reich: he reckons there’s no cause for fear if musicians who play such works do so joyously and skilfully. Zoltán Rácz, one of the most accomplished interpreters of Reich, thinks along the same lines, eschewing any talk of the divide between contemporary culture and the public. Zoltán Rácz conducts the Symphony Orchestra of the Liszt Academy in three exciting 20th century works: Stravinsky’s Symphonies written for 24 wind instruments, Ligeti’s iconic Violin Concerto, and after the interval, Reich’s The Desert Music for chorus and orchestra. After the performance of Music for 18 Musicians (November 2013)—considered to be one of Reich’s most brilliant pieces—with near hypnotic and novel sound experiences, we can be certain that Desert Music will have at least the same elemental impact on the audience in the Grand Hall of the Liszt Academy.
