    During a tour in Hungarian language, art historian Kata Benedek will give an insight into the exhibition PÉRI’S PEOPLE and the work of the artist Peter László Péri (1899-1967).

    This will be followed (from around 7 pm) by a concert by cellist Ildikó Szabó. With her selected pieces by two humanist composers, the musician would like to reflect Peter László Péri’s human-oriented art. The Hungarian composer György Kurtág is also linked to Péri by his nationality and by his artistic autonomy and love of experimentation.

    Concert program:

    György Kurtág: Az hit… / Faith
    J.S. Bach: Prélude, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande a.d. Suite No. 1 in G-dur BWV 1007
    György Kurtág: Pilinszky: Gérard de Nerval
    J.S. Bach: Sarabande, Menuette I-II, Gigue a.d. Suite No. 1 in G-dur BWV 1007
    György Kurtág: Árnyak / Schatten / Shadows


    Cost: €8 plus reduced admission (the price includes a drink)


    An event in cooperation with the Collegium Hungaricum Berlin.


    Kata Benedek is a Hungarian, berlin-based art historian and doctoral candidate at the Free University of Berlin.

    Ildikó Szabó is already a cellist institution in her native Hungary. In the meantime, she has transformed her child prodigy career into an extraordinary international virtuoso career: Ildikó studied at the Liszt Academy in Budapest from the age of eleven, attended master classes every summer with János Starker in Bloomington (Indiana, USA), among others, and released her first CD at the age of 14. In 2011, she continued her training in Germany and won several prizes at the most important international cello competitions. In 2014, she was awarded a total of eight prizes at the International Pablo Casals Competition. Ildikó is an alumna of the UdK Berlin and the HfM Weimar – from October this year she will be teaching at both universities herself.
