The training I received at the Academy was difficult and at times harsh, but those who survived the experience emerged as real musicians.

In a letter dated December 1916, Debussy wrote: “Not everyone can write ‘great music’ – it is still not clear what the expression means – but everyone must strive for this.” He bore this objective in mind throughout his life. Whether he was talking about art with sarcastic precision, aloof taciturnity or specifically defining himself as a French creator, his taste-shaping and style-creating music was always original, fresh, thought-provoking and inscrutable. On the centenary of his death, world-famous harpist and president of the Liszt Academy, Andrea Vigh, and the superb pianist couple Edit Klukon and Dezső Ránki have selected from Debussy’s rich oeuvre in order to prove – through this perfectly honed and sensitive chamber recital – the words of Kodály, who bade farewell to the great Frenchman in the journal Nyugat in March 1918: “Now, through him, we begin to understand why Mozart was so praised when his taste was mentioned with such emphasis. […] The path that he started out on leads towards freedom and beauty.”
