The musical experience is inseparable from the spectacle of the performance and those other ‘non-musical’ moments which occur on a stage. Many composers, particularly over the past few decades, have paid special attention not only to the music arrangement but also the visuality of its performance. The increasingly rich repertoire of the annual Átlátszó Hang (‘Transparent Sound’) New Music Festival has provided ever more exciting opportunities for us to experience a composition not only audibly but also visually through carefully staged performances. It is now a tradition for the opening concert of the festival to be hosted by different venues – and this year it is to be held in the Solti Hall. For this occasion, the focus of the concert is directed towards traditional music and the theatre of instruments, where we come across virtuosi of Chinese and Persian instruments, as well as a music stage work written by Krisztina Megyeri for actor, singer and two instrumentalists. The concert will be preceded by an interactive workshop with the performers from 6 pm in the Solti Hall.
